Here is a little bit about me! I was born in Richmond, BC and moved to Kelowna, BC when I was 3 years old. I like to consider myself a true Okanagan girl at heart. I enjoy everything the Okanagan has to offer, whether it be exploring the numerous amount of beautiful hiking trails, soaking up the sun on the crystal clear water of Okanagan Lake, or sipping local wine on a patio with breathtaking views. I like to spend my time attending classes at the gym, with some of my absolute favorites being barre (always gotta work on that booty!) and spin, or creating new recipes to add to my cookbook.
Something that is a huge focus in my life is my diet! When I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, I had to change my diet significantly in order to live a more optimal life. Eliminating large food groups like gluten and dairy from my diet was a very difficult challenge (because who really wants to give up bread and ice cream!), but it allowed me to see significant changes in my health, which now makes me very proud to be someone that does not eat gluten and dairy. I have learned that having dietary restrictions is nothing to be embarrassed about, but something to embrace; it is what makes me unique. I hope that this page can help to inspire others to follow their health goals allowing them to live the life they always deserved!
Don’t you worry, I have a little bit of knowledge in this brain of mine! I completed my undergraduate degree in Kelowna, where I spent my first two years at Okanagan College and my last two years at the University of British Columbia. I accomplished my bachelor of science in biology with honors in 2016 from UBC Okanagan. After finishing my degree I was accepted into Naturopathic medical school! I am currently a student at Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in New Westminster, BC. After completing my second year and starting my third, I am so excited to keep learning everything that Naturopathic Medicine has to offer. I work hard to continually educate myself, but more importantly to educate others!
