After completing a four-year Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology and a minor in Psychology at the University of Alberta, Dr. Wright moved to Toronto to pursue her passion in naturopathic medicine at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM). She successfully completed a 4-year post-graduate medical program at CCNM, which included a clinic internship at Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic. She also had the opportunity to work at Anishnawbe Health Toronto, a multi-disciplinary community health centre serving an inner city Aboriginal population, and Sherbourne Health Centre which cares for those affected by HIV and AIDS. She is a member in good standing with the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors and is a licensed naturopathic doctor in Ontario with the Board of Directors of Drugless Therapies-Naturopathy.
Dr. Wright has supplemented her knowledge learned in school with knowledge learned through continuing education courses, from peers and mentors and through life experience. Dr. Wright has received professional training in Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™, Yoga Therapy, Reiki, and has participated in training as a birth doula. In 2006, Dr. Wright traveled to India to research the intersection of traditional healing traditions, in the form of Ayurveda, with the conventional medical system. Dr. Wright is currently receiving further education in Infant Mental Health Promotion at York University and is a member of the World Association for Infant Mental Health.
Dr. Wright was born and raised in various communities in the Yukon and Northwest Territories. The pristine beauty of the landscape was always within a few meters of her back doorstep. Her experiences while growing up in the North fostered a desire to return and provide accessible, complimentary health care choices to northerners. She has an overwhelming desire to continue to learn and a sincere wish to help and educate others in a spirit of kindness and compassion. Dr. Wright looks forward to working with you to recognize and fulfill your goals for health and healing!
