I come from a long line of pharmacists and health care professionals : my grandfather and father were pharmacists, and my uncle and brother are both doctors. It was only natural for me to follow in their footsteps.
I received my pharmacy degree in the United States at the Arnold and Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy in New York City. I am licensed to practice in British Columbia and Quebec.
Having worked with both addiction clients and chronic pain clients. I have developped through time different strategies that seem to help people cope and move on with their lives.
I must confess that I have learnt much of what I know from the clients I work with. I am still amazed at the resilience and the unicity of the human character both in pain and addiction issues.
