I earned my medical degree from the University of British Columbia and received a Fellowship in the College of Family Physicians of Canada with over 17 years of practicing and seeing thousands of patients in various stages of their life. I am a mother of two, a wife, a sister, a daughter, a friend, a business owner, and an advocate and family doctor for preventative care. To advocate for patients, there was a need to create the preventative health platform called Zili CARE; bringing tools and insights on how to take ownership of your health mentally and physically. I utilized my voice as a CBC health contributor and speaker on resiliency, mental health, and gender equity. I love teaching and being a clinical instructor for the UBC Family Practice and Medical programs. I sit on the board of BC Family Doctors and have Negotiated on behalf of Doctors of BC for a new payment model for family physicians, and better compensation and resources for all physicians, so that we can bring better care for our patients and makes changes to our broken health care system.

I realize the importance of affording myself the same consideration and kindness I advocate for my loved ones and patients. I studied Compassionate Inquiry with mentor and teacher Dr. Gabor Maté, an approach to help soften the effects of repressed fear and pain. I realized the importance of the Zili CARE Formula in my own daily life with meditation, a short bout of exercise daily, and being in nature, and that has fed my soul in order to go through the journey of life with purpose.
