I first graduated as a Registered Nurse in Quebec City in 1979. For the next five years, I worked as a nurse in an Inuit community in the Arctic and in Montreal with children suffering from cancer and other degenerative and chronic conditions. In 1985, I graduated from the Nurse‑Midwifery Program at St‑John’s University, Newfoundland, and subsequently worked at a high-risk maternity hospital in Montreal. Seven years of nursing and caring for those involved in the passages of birth and death played a determining role in my professional development. More than ever, I was convinced that there were certainly in nature some approaches or methods that can prevent and alleviate the suffering of so many, and help in the healing of their acute or chronic ailments.
This belief led me to a search for alternatives and eventually, to naturopathic medicine, homeopathy and to Bowen therapy. Although they are gentle in approach, these methods are of a preventative and healing nature while being safe and empowering.
For me, naturopathic medicine is more than a medical system. It is an art of living where there is harmony with the laws of nature, the self, others and the surrounding world. My work is my life. My life thrives through my work.
