What do you enjoy most about teaching?
It’s my favorite thing! I love being able to teach students “pearls” that I’ve learned along the way that will help them in their clinical practice. I also love having the opportunity to impart the importance of balance in medicine to my students, and just how important it is to also take care of ourselves, so that we can best take care of our patients.

What do you love most about where you live?
I am a runner, and living in Kelowna is great for being able to run with beautiful scenery. I also enjoy all of the beautiful places to hike. Of course, the wineries are also a plus 😉.

What is the best piece of advice you ever received?
Sometimes saying “no” is a sign of strength. Know your boundaries and limits.
