While overseas, she worked with and studied the birth practices of Cambodian women. The results of her research are published in the academic text Maternity and Reproductive Health in Asian Societies. She has also had her research and articles printed in well known publications such as Flare Pregnancy Magazine.
It was during her years spent travelling and volunteering that she began to understand and embrace naturopathic medicine. She witnessed its extraordinary power first hand while in Cambodia, where spiritual and herbal healers, psychiatrists, acupuncturists and counsellors all worked collectively to help treat mental health patients within the UN camp. While in Nepal, she was also fortunate to work with a traditional healer who cured her of lifelong, chronic asthma. The amazing efforts and results she observed during these travels are the true inspiration for her decision to pursue the study of naturopathy.
