Annie grew up in Regina, Saskatchewan where she developed a passion for health and helping others through her love of science and volunteer work in her community. She dreamt of becoming a medical doctor and worked towards her goal by completing her Bachelor of Science with a minor in Nutrition at the University of Alberta in Edmonton.
It was through her participation in sports growing up and as a young adult that she developed a passion for nutrition and healthy living. Believing that she could help others live the lives they truly desired, she sought to continue her education in the healthcare field. It was through her personal experience with chronic migraines that she determined the western medical course was not for her, and subsequently began to research and pursue alternative treatments. It was through the book Total Health the Chinese Way by Esther Ting and Marianne Jas that Annie discovered the field of naturopathic medicine. She had finally found what she was looking for – a well-rounded health care system for her own personal care.
Annie began to work in a private naturopathic office in Calgary to gain more insight and experience within the field. She fell in love with the holistic approach to patient care and the many different treatment options available. She moved to Tempe, Arizona where she completed the doctorate program at the Southwest College of Naturopathic medicine.
Annie continued to develop her love for natural medicine and expand her knowledge by volunteering with groups such as Naturopaths Without Borders and the Sports Medicine Club at her college. She has traveled to Rocky Point, Mexico to give free natural healthcare to the under-served population there and has also volunteered at multiple sporting events with the Sports Medicine Club to provide taping, adjustments and soft tissue work on athletes under the supervision of a licensed physician. She has completed her Level I in Kinesiology Taping and certifications in prolotherapy and PRP injections. She has also completed training in medical aesthetics and extra training focusing on women’s health and hormone therapies. With her advanced knowledge and experience in women’s health, Annie developed an online coaching program for women who want to naturally balance their hormones and experience symptom-free cycles, called The Symptom-Free Period System. Annie also works as an adjunct faculty member as a clinical supervisor at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in New Westminster.
