    I was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia and have been gradually moving my way westward after completing my MD at the University of Saskatchewan and my residency training in Hematological Pathology at the University of Alberta in 2018. Currently, I am a partner with the C. J. Coady Group, which provides laboratory medicine services to Fraser Health hospitals and LifeLabs. My professional interests include coagulation, transfusion medicine, laboratory informatics and teaching residents and medical students.
