Meet Dr Debra
Dr Debra is passionate about evidence based medicine. She believes in utilizing personalized care that manages disease risk. Her goal is the early identification of pathological processes resulting in prescribed interventions for a return to optimal health. Ever curious about healing and the human body, Dr Debra graduated from the International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 1996, and is always researching and learning new and old techniques. She has a penchant for problem-solving and strives for efficiency and resolution. Dr Debra is a Doctor of both the science and the art of medicine.
Downtime finds Dr Debra with her head in a book, her hands in the kitchen, and her feet hitting the ground or racing to catch a flight to some adventurous locale. She sits on the board of Food Runners, a Vancouver-based non profit which repurposes food based on local need. A detail-oriented and analytical thinker, she is always learning something new.
