I am originally from North Rustico, PEI. I completed my B.Sc. in pharmacy at Dalhousie University, graduating in 1994. I practiced as a community pharmacist in PEI for five years before going back to medical school at Dalhousie University. I then went on to complete my internal medicine residency at Queens University and my fellowship in Endocrinology and Metabolism at the University of Toronto. I have been practicing as an endocrinologist at the Moncton hospital since 2008.
