Short Bio

I completed my MD at the University of Saskatchewan in 2014 and my residency training in Hematological Pathology at the University of Alberta in 2018. In 2022 I was promoted to Clinical Assistant Professor at UBC.

Currently I am a partner with the C. J. Coady Group, which provides laboratory medicine services to Fraser Health hospitals and LifeLabs. I am medical director of Fraser Health Tissue Bank and co-medical lead for transfusion medicine at Fraser Health. I also serve on the Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Working Group for Doctors of BC.

My professional interests include coagulation, transfusion medicine, laboratory informatics and teaching residents and medical students. Outside of work, I enjoy learning new languages, visiting places of historical interest, trying new places to eat, and exploring the outdoors.
