My mother is Ojibway and my father immigrated to Canada from Italy. I love living in Northern BC with my daughter and husband. I am a surgeon, researcher, and Associate Professor at the University of British Columbia. I love clinical work with patients; both in the operating room and the time I get to spend with them before and after. I love teaching – and being taught. I try to keep a balanced lifestyle and tend to fail miserably at that and love the fact that I know I do…so not beyond hope. I look forward to this C3 adventure!
