I am very excited to be joining the great team at Partners in Pregnancy clinic! I grew up in Waterloo, Ontario and then completed my undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Guelph in 2006. Following that I completed
medical school and Family Medicine residency at McMaster
University in 2011. During this time I discovered my passion
for maternity care so I completed 4 extra months of training in
obstetrics. I started out my career in Hamilton working at the
Maternity Centre of Hamilton in 2011 doing Family Medicine Obstetrics.
At this time I also worked in the ER, student health, a downtown community
health centre, and did some Global Health.
In 2014 I gave birth to my son Ollie in Hamilton. Through this experience I
discovered another area of interest: breastfeeding. In 2015 I completed the
Breastfeeding Program at Mohawk College and did clinical training in
Breastfeeding and tongue-tie release at the Jack Newman Breastfeeding Clinic in
Toronto. I hope that these experiences will be helpful to the mothers and babies
Outside of medicine, I have many loves including traveling, hanging out with my
husband, son, and dog, biking, running, swimming, tending to my veggie garden, and competing in triathlons. I am very excited about moving to Peterborough and joining the amazing team at PIPC!
