A family physician who has practised in Indigenous Health in southwestern Ontario since 2015. She brings her unique experience as a mixed-race Indigenous-German-French woman to her medical practice through a holistic approach: after giving her patients the time they need to share the physical, emotional, spiritual and mental aspects of their experience as they understand it, Samantha uses her knowledge of both allopathic and Indigenous medicine to support and encourage them on their paths of healing and wellness. She also brings her gifts of intuition and calming energy to each patient encounter and is able to guide her patients in practising yoga; her own yoga practice spans more than 10 years. Striving to maintain her personal wellness is important to Samantha, who believes wellness is contagious. She is committed to providing medical education to future physicians regarding the impact of racism, ignorance and complacency on the health outcomes of Indigenous people in her role as faculty member at the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry at Western University. You can often find Samantha in Wortley Village in London, Ontario, walking with her young daughter or enjoying coffee and conversation with friends.
