I'm a family physician living outside of Toronto, Canada who had to resign my practice following a diagnosis of Young Onset Parkinson's Disease at age 27. I have now dedicated my time to patient education, writing, and Parkinson's advocacy. I am passionate about sharing with patients the coping strategies available to them in order to face the challenges of adjusting physically and emotionally to this disease.
I have the privilege of being an active speaker in Canada and internationally at patient-directed conferences. I work with a number of excellent organizations including The Michael J. Fox foundation, the Davis Phinney Foundation, The Brian Grant Foundation, Parkinson Canada, Lakeridge Health Foundation and Parkinson’s Movement UK.
