As soon as I discovered naturopathic medicine, I knew it was what I was meant to do. I didn’t really understand why at the time. I found out about naturopathic medicine as I started my university degree at the University of Toronto where I completed my studies in Nutritional Sciences and Human Biology Health and Disease. What I felt at the time was that this form of medicine completely aligned with the values I grew up with and with my love for nutrition.
As I continued my studies at the University of Toronto and the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine following that, I quickly entered and persisted through burnout. It wasn’t until I applied an all-encompassing approach that included prioritizing myself, changing my mindset, optimizing the foundations of my health, and seeking support through herbal medicine and other therapies that I started feeling energized and well again. It is this experience that has ignited my passion to help other overworked and overstressed women feel well and themselves again.
Now, as I continue to help my patients, I understand how being a naturopathic doctor allows me to do what I love which is to
- hold space
- connect with others
- empower others to feel better.
