Melissa received her Honors degree in Human Biology and History from the University of Toronto, with a particular interest in Fetal/Developmental Biology. Her passion for health and medicine landed her in a community pharmacy where she worked for 10 years. Her extensive exposure to pharmaceutical medicines was where she witnessed the limitations and harm a conventional and unholistic approach can have on patients, young and old.
She was drawn to Homeopathy because of its low dose and minimal (if any) side effects, which to her meant that a patient was allowed the opportunity to heal without the possibility of becoming more sick in the process.
Melissa received her designation from the Ontario College of Homeopathic Medicine where she graduated with Honors and is an active member of the Ontario Homeopathic Association.
Along with practicing Homeopathy, Melissa can be found at the clinic on a full time bases, as she also operates as Clinic Manager.
