Jen is a Naturopathic Doctor with a passion for helping people reach their optimal health level. She firmly believes that naturopathic medicine is about becoming an active participant in one’s own health as well as becoming aware of how the body is affected by our thoughts, emotions, physical stressors, food and environment. Jen takes an individualized approach with each of her patients.
She uses a combination of clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture, acute homeopathy, and lifestyle counselling to help people reach their personal health goals.
Jen graduated with Honours from the University of Guelph with a Bachelor of Applied Science degree, majoring in Human Nutrition. She then went on to complete a four-year professional program in Naturopathic Medicine at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto.
During her studies, she also worked as a fitness instructor, personal trainer and nutritionist. Jen enjoys running, moksha yoga, weight training, spinning, ultimate frisbee, biking, and skiing. She has also completed several 5k’s, 10k’s, and two half marathons, and is aiming for a full marathon.
