How I came to study Naturopathic Medicine:
During my undergraduate studies in Anthropology and Native Studies at Trent University, I had the opportunity to work on some projects on traditional medicine with Dene First Nation in the NWT. It was through this practical experience of working with communities and seeing the transformative power of traditional styles of healing that addressed the health of the whole person: body and mind rather than focusing on the disease, that I was inspired to pursue studying naturopathic medicine. I went back to university, to the University of Calgary to take the pre-med science requirements, and at the same time living in Canmore, co-founded a backcountry adventure company which continued working with while practicing in the Kootenays. Alongside yoga and meditation, cooking wholefoods, my love of the outdoors and the abundance of biking and hiking options on the coast continue to supply me with the energy that fuels my daily.
