Originally from Montreal, I completed a Bachelors of Art in Psychology at Concordia University, with a minor in Behavioural Neuroscience. I then studied at the Toronto School of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TSTCM), graduating in 2007. Immediately thereafter I began practicing acupuncture at the Alive Holistic Health Clinic with the renowned Mary Wong, treating a wide range of conditions from chronic pain therapy, HIV complications, neurological disorders, cancer, stress management, digestive issues and injuries, to integrated infertility treatments (male and female) and menstrual conditions. In 2008, I returned to Montreal and worked in private practice along with continuing studies at the College-de-Rosemont.

I continued my eudcation in acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2011 when I moved to Calgary, at the Calgary College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture (CCTCMA). For the next 3 years, I worked at the CCTCMA clinic and also became a certified Birth Doula through the DONA international program. In addition, I have also completed the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre Fundamentals of Oncology Acupuncture Course.

In 2018, my family and I returned to Toronto and I currently see patients at the Alive Holistic Health Clinic as well as the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine Integrative Cancer Centre, where I contribute to our vision of providing patients with cancer adjunctive support alongside conventional treatments.
