Emily (she/they) grew up in southern Ontario, but has been steadily moving west over the years, completing their medical school at the University of Calgary and then their Family Medicine residency on the beautiful traditional and unceded territories of the Musquem, Squamish, and Tseil-Watuth nations here in Vancouver.
Throughout residency, she was lucky to be mentored by the wonderful family practice maternity group doctors here at BCWH and at Sheway clinic in the Downtown Eastside, and through them she developed a particular interest in perinatal addictions and mental health. As well, they are passionate about 2SLGBTQIA health and gender affirming care. She hopes to provide care that allows families of every structure to feel safe and supported in their birth experience, one of the most special experiences for a family!
In their free time, they love running on the beach, curling up with a good book, and spending time in the mountains, hiking or skiing depending on the season.
