I like to say that a lifelong interest in health and learning has led me to where I am today, but as most journey’s go, it has been a winding road! Since high school, I have been fascinated by the human body (biology was my favorite class!) and always had an understanding that how I felt day to day was affected by the food I was eating and the exercise I was participating in. I had no major health issues until I spent a year backpacking around Australia, New Zealand, and South East Asia. I returned home from this incredible trip with severe digestive issues. This led me down a long, frustrating path of multiple Doctor’s appointments, specialist appointments, and ended with a blanket diagnosis and no satisfactory treatment options or relief. I spent years dealing with digestive discomfort, hormonal imbalances, and extremely high stress levels as I embarked on a corporate career as a Chartered Accountant at a top tier accounting firm in downtown Toronto. I discovered Naturopathic Medicine a few years into my corporate career, and that is when my health finally shifted. Through my personal journey with Naturopathic Medicine, I was able to engage with a caring and dedicated naturopathic doctor who worked to get to the root cause of my symptoms and used a wholistic approach to bring my body back into balance. Even though it involved making changes to my diet, lifestyle and mindset, which was not always easy, the level of wellness that I experienced as a result was worth it. Through this process, I discovered my passion for helping others to achieve the level of vibrant health that I was able to experience. I truly believe that when we get to the root cause of your symptoms and support your body to return to a state of balance, you can experience true wellness, energy, and vitality.
