A native of Nova Scotia, I received my Bachelor of Science degree and Doctor of Medicine at Dalhousie University in Halifax. I went on to specialize in urologic surgery at the same institution. I finished my training at the University of Toronto, Sunnybrook Hospital with a fellowship in Urodynamics and female incontinence. A significant part of the training included cancer surgery.
I worked for a period of time in Sudbury, Ontario prior to moving to Oshawa in 1997. Since moving to Oshawa I have developed a large general urologic practice with emphasis on laparascopic surgery, oncology and female incontinence. We have a strong affiliation with the Durham Region Cancer Centre with regular Urologic Oncology clinics.
In 2014 I took on the role of Medical Director of the Surgical Program at Lakeridge Health. That same year I added the role of Adjunct I Associate Professor at Queens University teaching Family Practice residents.
