Ever since I was a child, I knew my calling was to become a doctor. When I sustained a back injury in my teens, and conventional medicine was unhelpful, I found out about Naturopathic Medicine and turned to a Naturopathic Doctor for assistance. That is when I discovered how truly remarkable Naturopathic Medicine is, and decided that a Naturopathic Doctor was the kind of healer that I needed to be.
I am thrilled to have been able to achieve that goal. Since 2000, I have been working as a licensed Naturopathic Doctor in Thornhill, Ontario. There I see people, from infants to the elderly, and everyone in between; and treat a variety of health concerns, ranging from frequent colds, digestive difficulties; allergies, weight management; endocrine disorders, menstrual problems; infertility disorders, ADHD; cardiovascular disease; multiple sclerosis, and cancer.
I am a graduate of The University of Toronto, where I was a four-time Dean's List award earner. I also earned The Dr. James A. and Connie P. Dickson Award for academic excellence. I graduated with High Distinction, receiving an Honours Bachelors Degree in Microbiology and a minor in Immunology.
I then graduated at the top of my class from The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2000, earning several awards, including The Governor's Medal of Excellence Award for academic and clinical excellence, The Saveira Zambri Award, and the Dr. J. Farquarhson Award for excellence in Homeopathic Medicine. Afterward, I completed three extra post-graduate years of training to hone my skills in Homeopathic Medicine.
Aside from my practice, I have been heavily involved in teaching at various colleges. Since 2009, I have been the Lead Instructor of the Physical Examination course at The Canadian College of Homeopathic Medicine. Since 2000, I have been a Clinical Instructor for several courses at The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, including Acupuncture and Fundamentals of Naturopathic Medicine; and currently I am a Clinical instrucor in Third Year Orthopedics , as well as Second and Third Year Spinal Manipulation. I also devote a portion of my time toward lecturing around the city, giving seminars on the various ways that people can optimize their health.
Working as a Naturopathic Doctor isn't just a career for me, it's a passion that I am privileged to do. And not only am I passionate about my work, I'm passionate about my patients. The beauty about this is that patients feel the same way about me as I do about them. They banded together to help me receive The Thornhill Liberal Newspaper's 2015 and 2016 "Reader's Choice Top Naturopathic Doctor" Award" . And when I help patients, I feel like I am doing what I am meant to do--to help people achieve wellness to the best of my abilities, with all the care, thoughtfulness, and dedication that I can give.
