As a current Burnaby resident who was born and raised in the city, it has always been important to me to give back to the community that has given so much to me. I am a Family Medicine Physician that currently practices at multiple clinics in Burnaby, which includes an outpatient clinic, a residential care facility, and an urgent care clinic. I am also a Hospitalist at Langley Memorial Hospital. My diverse roles and my training have shown me the importance of preventive medicine to help patients change their lifestyles to live longer and healthier lives. In order to accomplish this, I have also learned that it is necessary for our profession to have a strong support system, which is why the work of the Burnaby Division of Family Practice is so important. This has become even more evident during the COVID pandemic, and I have assisted in many different initiatives, including providing virtual care during the start of the pandemic, providing care at the COVID testing site and UPCC.
I am a hard worker who is dedicated to help our community and feel that my unique experiences and a strong understanding of the community will allow me to be a valuable contributor as a Board Director with the Burnaby Division of Family Practice.
