I am a documentary photographer, storyteller, and purpose-driven life coach.


But I started my journey as an emergency doctor at the University Health Network and an assistant professor of medicine at the University of Toronto. My love of learning and exploration led me to the peaks of a European Space Agency parabola, the rough roads of rural Cambodia, and the shiny halls of business school. I eventually took a much-needed pause to walk an 800 km spiritual journey to find my way home through photography, writing, and motherhood. 

I use storytelling to shed light on the shame-based culture of medicine. I want to advocate for a sustainable workforce in medicine through a deep reflection on shame resilience, empathy, vulnerability, self-compassion, and gratitude. 


My work has been supported by a National Geographic Covid grant and can be found in various national media outlets.
