Growing up in Brandon, Manitoba, Karly was surrounded by a close-knit family who encouraged healthy living. Every year, her parents planted a huge vegetable garden which they harvested every fall so they could enjoy healthy produce all year round. Fresh produce from the garden was used to make jams, salsa, and canned goods. Karly realized the benefits of fueling the body with natural, healthy, whole foods and wanted to explore options in the healthcare field that would allow her to promote living a healthy lifestyle. This is when the field of Naturopathic Medicine peaked her interest!
After graduating from Vincent Massey High School in Brandon, Manitoba, Karly attended Brandon University where she obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree with a Major in Math and Minor in Psychology. She then moved to Toronto, Ontario to attend the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) where she completed a 4 year degree in Naturopathic Medicine. During her time in Toronto, she received training in all aspects of Naturopathic Medicine, including but not limited to, Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, Botanical Medicine, Nutrition, Lifestyle counselling, Physical Medicine and Homeopathy. During her Naturopathic Internship, Karly cared for and treated patients who presented with a wide variety of conditions. Karly also received training in Oncology where she was an integral part of the Integrative Oncology Team at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic in Toronto.
Karly is certified to practice as a Registered Naturopathic Doctor (ND) under the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Medicine (CAND). She is also an active member of the Manitoba Naturopathic Association (MNA).
Karly is passionate about the care and well-being of her patients. She is excited to share her knowledge and passion for healthy living and wants to encourage all her patients to become the healthiest version of themselves!
In her spare time, Karly she likes spending quality time with her family and friends. She enjoys the benefits of living an active lifestyle. She loves activities such as yoga, mountain biking, playing hockey, baking healthy (but tasty!) snacks, and gardening….especially when these activities can be enjoyed alongside family and friends!
