Pathways to Education Canada is a charitable foundation created to reduce poverty and its effects by lowering the high-school dropout rate and increasing access to post-secondary education among disadvantaged youth in Canada. The Pathways program is designed to help children to stay in school and graduate, thus significantly reducing dropout rates.

As a Pathways Mentor, we organize sessions to help students gain the passion and information they need to succeed. My primary role is to discuss careers in healthcare but to also discuss networking, job search, resume writing, interview skills, and beyond.

Pathways launched its initial program in Regent Park in Toronto in 2001. Regent Park is at an economic disadvantage, with a very low average income and very limited prospects for youth. Dropout rates in high school had reached nearly 60 percent (twice the city average). The program has now expanded to other parts of Toronto.

Full bio

As a small business owner I stay connected with emerging technology startups and also in medical innovation.

I have a diverse array of interests within family medicine including women's health, immigrant/refugee health, and minor office procedures (IUD insertions, laceration management, lumps, bumps removal).

I am also involved with teaching medical students at the University of Toronto. I participate in medical mission trips to help Haitian refugees living in the Dominican Republic.

I am a mentor to future family physicians in the Ontario Women's Medical Foundation. I am also a mentor with the Boston Consulting Group and Pathways to Education to increase access to post-secondary school education among disadvataged youth in Toronto.

I live with my husband and daughter in Toronto.
