What drew you to naturopathic medicine?
Ever since I was a little kid, I always loved helping people, so it was a no-brainer that I would pursue a career in health care. However, it wasn’t until late into my undergraduate degree at U of T did I discover Naturopathic Medicine. What really drew me to pursuing this as a career were the philosophies and tenets behind this medicine. I believe in optimizing the foundations of health to support the body’s natural ability to heal. I look beyond the symptoms to treat the root cause of disease, and I love educating and empowering people to take control of their health so that they can prevent chronic disease in the future. These principles are at the centre of my approach to patient care.
