I attend Adler University in downtown Vancouver and am currently working towards my M.A. in Counselling Psychology. I am beginning the process of my thesis and am very interested in obesity and weight loss and its effect on the individual. I am studying whether or not psychotherapy can be helpful for weight loss, and am interested in working in this field in a professional manner after i've obtained my degree.

The worldwide epidemic of Diabesity is locally evident in my suburban clinical practice. I am now diagnosing new cases of Diabetes, IFG, and Obesity on a daily basis - 50% of my patients are either overweight, obese or morbidly obese (per BMI). I am acutely interested in helping reverse this trend.

I graduated with a Master's degree, focusing on the effects of maternal obesity on fetal brain development. I continue to recognize the global issue of obesity though no longer conducting research in this field, and I am consistently reminded of the necessity for further education regarding this while working outside the scientific community.

I am a CSEP-CEP who specializes in physical literacy for children 8-12 years of age. It is very important to provide children the skills they need to be physically literate and continue to progress in their physical literacy journey throughout life. Providing the skills early will help children be active adults!
