“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” Mahatma Gandhi I am a naturopathic physician and co-founder of Pacifica Naturopathic Clinic in West Vancouver, BC. I have a family practice and a special focus on women’s health and children’s wellness. Over the past six years of my practise, I have studied, researched, and also personally lived out what I have found to be most effective, gentle, and results-oriented tools for my patients. I take time with my patients to listen to their stories; I am thorough; I truly believe in the tenant, doctor as teacher. I combine intelligent, modern, research-based medicine with the traditional philosophies of naturopathic medicine. I graduated as a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine from the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine. My undergraduate studies at the University of Guelph in Environmental Science helped to inspire my passion for nature and it was there that I discovered my love for natural medicine. In BC, I have drug prescriptive authority; I am licensed to perform acupuncture, IV therapies including neural therapy; and I am currently undergoing the newly licensed certificates for specialization in Pediatrics, Women’s Health, and Obstetrics. I have a passion for active living including running, hiking the north shore trails. I love contagious laughter and I appreciate and enjoy every precious moment I have with my family. My husband, Blair and my two sons, Jack and Sam, are the loves of my life. My life’s purpose is to show my patients what I have learned to be the most effective means to optimal health and longevity. I will support my patients in any way necessary to help them get the results they desire to meet their exceptional health goals.
