Are you always waking up with a sleepy head? You know, that groggy feeling that lasts throughout the day. Waking up with a dry mouth and headache and feeling unenergized and unable to function while at work, school, or at home could be pointing to something more serious.
Don’t ignore the signs: Sleep apnea is a chronic condition that afflicts more than 5.4 million Canadian adults and can lead to significant health complications.
Luckily, Snore MD is here to help sleep apnea sufferers on Vancouver Island with proven results using modern technology and the knowledge that will help you experience better sleep, better life.
Our team of sleep experts knows what it takes to treat your sleep apnea and snoring. That’s because we are experts in the field. Our clinicians include registered respiratory therapists, nurses, and other health care professionals who have studied every aspect of sleep: from symptoms to treatment using the latest sleep equipment, including CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) therapy.
We welcome you to visit our Dream Team and take a look at our state-of-the-art CPAP equipment. Together, we will get to the root of your sleep issue and find the solution that works for your lifestyle.
My drive to help others brought me into the wonderful world of healthcare, specifically becoming a Registered Respiratory Therapist. I knew a career in sleep was for me when I saw the huge improvements in so many areas of my patients’ lives, and having the ability to follow them long-term and develop such a great rapport with them is so rewarding.
My biggest accomplishment in life is moving from Edmonton AB (where I lived almost all my life) to Victoria BC, with my wonderful husband and fur babies, to pursue my passion of working with the best team to give the best treatment to my patients.
What I love most about working with patients is seeing how happy they become when they start to get a good sleep. I love hearing all their stories about all the things they can do now, and hearing how I changed their lives and the lives of the family and friends around them.
I first became interested in Sleep when I was studying Respiratory Therapy and learned about the serious health consequences of untreated Sleep Apnea. I was amazed to hear from patients how treating Sleep Apnea could make such a difference in their lives. Helping people to get on the best therapy, and seeing the difference that can make, has been a great privilege.
My biggest accomplishment in life has been raising my children. My greatest good luck has been marrying my steadfast husband and experiencing the joy of grandchildren.
I enjoy connecting with patients. After many years working with Sleep Apnea patients, it still never gets old, seeing lives change and health improve.
