Short Bio

Born and raised in “La belle province” of Québec, I obtained my M.D. from Université de Sherbrooke. Following graduation I pursued an internship in Pediatrics at Université Laval in Québec City. I then completed my Pediatric residency with three years at Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, including a fellowship in Pediatric Infectious Diseases. My interest in Pediatric Infectious Diseases brought me to Vancouver to complete a research fellowship at BC Children’s Hospital followed by another residency program in Medical Microbiology at University of British Columbia. I have worked in various sites in Vancouver including community laboratory, VGH, BCCDC and currently at Providence Health Care as Medical Microbiologist for the past 12 years. I have been involved in Medical Education as Program Director and Site Director for Medical Microbiology Residency Training Committee. I was recipient of the Resident Teaching Appreciation Award by Medical Microbiology residents (2010-2011). I also served as Board examiner in Medical Microbiology for Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons for five years.
