To the amazing, wonderful, and dedicated patients of Whole Family Health:
This past couple of years has been quite the ride for me. I’m not going to lie, it wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows; there were some trials and tribulations (I’ll spare you the gritty details). However, it was all worth it because it led me to this point in my career. I am proud to say that I am entering a partnership in taking over ownership of Whole Family Health! I feel so fortunate that I will be doing this alongside my esteemed colleague Dr. Alda Ngo.
As most of you know I have been at Whole Family Health since it opened in the winter of 2010. This is where I started my career and I am incredibly thankful to Cecil Horwitz, the founder, for taking a chance on a new acupuncturist fresh out of University and showing me what it takes to be a successful practitioner. He taught me the importance of constantly upgrading my skills and inspired me to become an accredited reproductive health specialist, by becoming a Fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (FABORM). I will always hold Cecil in high regard for his pioneering work in educating the public and medical community in Edmonton on the value of integrated medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine for reproductive health.
Dr Alda and I are looking forward to building on the strong foundation that Cecil has created and introducing some innovations of our own that will make the operations of the clinic easier for the practitioners and access of treatments easier for our patients.
Honestly, being a part of Whole Family Health’s future is a dream come true. I get to do what I love by continuing to treat patients and fulfilling my career goals of being a clinic owner- all at the same time!
I have to say that I love what I do, mostly because of my patients. You have honoured me by making me a part of your incredible life stories and health journeys. I look forward to continuing to be your healthcare provider and sharing in your journey to health and wellbeing.
I am truly excited to see where Dr Alda and I will be taking Whole Family Health in the future. Stay tuned, because we have so many great ideas and a shared vision about what this beautiful clinic can become.
To The Future!
