I was born and raised in Montreal and Toronto. I studied psychology at McGill University, then neuroscience and medicine at the University of Toronto. I moved to B.C. after medical school and have now been here for over 15 years. 

For fun, I enjoy being outdoors skiing, kayaking, and hiking with my rescue pup Mija. I try to do something active every day and also do daily yoga and ball rolling to keep my chronic pain at bay.
