For as long as I can remember, I've always wanted to be in a field where I got to learn about the human body. This led me to my first degree at the University of British Columbia where I got an honours degree specializing in Cell and Developmental biology. After graduation I knew I wanted to take my curiosity outside of the lab and apply it to a more people-centered career. Life had other plans, as it often does, and led me on a completely different path - thrown into the world of corporate employment. While I graduated knowing I wanted to be in health care in some capacity, I hadn’t found exactly what I was looking for. I was lucky enough to have people with similar values and interests as my own. Slowly sprinkles of Naturopathic Medicine began falling into my life. I immediately resonated with the foundations grounded in human connection with nature and the growing body of scientific evidence supporting the medicine. Everything that I was intuitively searching for - I could see in Naturopathic medicine. I found myself in school for another 4 years at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Vancouver pursuing a passion I had always described but never knew existed.
Having spent time growing up both in Vancouver, Canada and Cairo, Egypt - I carry a unique perspective that drives my curiosity towards science as well as culture, human experience and where they intersect. When I’m not in the clinic you can find me either at a Lagree class, spin class, anywhere by the water, in the kitchen experimenting with whole food ingredients or on a mountain (only if the sun is out). I’m also trying to teach myself film photography - and I welcome any advice on this one.
My goal is to meet patients wherever they are at and support their health through a plan that is not only attainable but sustainable. Can't wait to chat all things your body!
