A Little Bit About Dr. Fiona
When Fiona was a young girl, she would spend hours “compounding” mixtures made from plants and trees in the outdoor wooded areas where she spent much of her time roaming free. As she grew older she became fascinated with science, biology, medicine and biochemistry, and would spend her time reading through medical journals, encyclopedias and textbooks. As such, Naturopathic Medicine was the career path that truly spoke to her heart and mind and she feels fortunate to work daily in a profession that is her life’s calling.
Dr. Fiona is married to her amazingly supportive husband Shane, and has three beautiful young sons who inspire her every day in her life’s work.
