Our Registered Nurse Mikaela was born and raised in Ottawa where she graduated from the University of Ottawa with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2012.

Mikaela then spent the next several years refining her nursing skills at The Ottawa Hospital where she worked primarily in General Surgery and on the Trauma Unit. Although she loved caring for patients in the hospital, she decided to follow her passion for integrative and functional medicine by taking a position at the Ottawa Integrative Cancer Centre. Over the two years she worked at the OICC, she saw the many ways in which naturopathic and integrative medicine can be used to enhance the health and quality of life of patients. She is very skilled at IV insertions and phlebotomy, and continues to work casually at VGH as part of the IV Team to continue to develop her expertise.

In early 2020 Mikaela was thrilled to join the Connect Health team. She is so happy to work in a collaborative environment where she can continue to see the impact of integrative healthcare on the lives of patients.
