  About Me
Fall down seven times, get up eight.
- Japanese Proverb

A country girl and a minimalist at heart, I strive to take every day as it comes. My close family and friends describe me as an easy-going individual; one that has an uncanny ability to be very meticulous regarding tasks at hand. Loyal perhaps to a fault I am known to only take on commitments if I know I can honor them (If I cannot do something, you will know ahead of time. )

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology and Health Sciences, and given my medical training and passion for all-things-natural, I hope to pursue a naturopathic medical degree in the years to come.

I appreciate the concept of work-life balance as I have a hard work ethic, but also understand the importance of lifestyle, namely, taking care of oneself on a holistic level. During my time outside of work, I cherish my time with my nieces and nephews, my volunteer commitments and walking/running around the city.
