Hometown: Huntsville, Ontario, Canada
Favorite thing about SCNM: There are many opportunities to pursue whichever field of medicine I am interested in.

Campus involvement: Student ambassador, Naturopaths Without Borders (NWB) board member (trip coordinator), human anatomy TA.
Something unique about you: I spend as much time hiking and camping outdoors as I can; Arizona is a fantastic place for me to live!
Modality/population area of interest: Pediatrics and oncology.
Why you love naturopathic medicine: It focuses on natural methods to improve a person’s health rather than methods of suppressing symptoms.
What you love about Arizona: I love the weather and the landscape. There are endless options for outdoor activities, and because the weather is so nice, you can take advantage of the outdoors all year round. We are also very close to some awesome locations, such as the Grand Canyon, California, Mexico and Utah.
