Michelle was born in Dawson Creek, BC, a small town in the cold, far north. Her family made their way down to the lower mainland and lived in too many cities to mention but eventually settled on the North Shore when she was thirteen.
She graduated from Carson Graham and had her first job at sixteen doing clerical filing at a travel insurance company. Passing through other odd jobs, she eventually became a licensed insurance agent. Although selling car insurance was enjoyable; she always had a longing to be in healthcare. She landed herself a job working for Dr. Anderson in 2005. Dr. Anderson moved into the Carestation Clinic on Esplanade, and this is where she met Dr. Zeineddin. It was here Dr. Zeineddin said to Michelle, “One day I want you to come and work for me.” As fate would have it, she started working with Dr. Zeineddin and Dr. Barre in April 2009.
In her spare time you'll find her going for walks with her boyfriend and dog, hanging out with her friends and family, and watching the Canucks.
Her patients are like family, and they keep her coming back to work every day with a smile.

Kira was born and raised in Europe, moved to the states for her education with her family and then started her life in Vancouver, BC in 2017.
In college she studied early childhood education, and truly enjoyed it. However, she really enjoyed seeing what her sister was accomplishing in the health care field and that’s when her interest to work in the health care blossomed.
Kira knew she always wanted to work with people and after she graduated as a Medical Office Assistant she knew this was her calling. Now she feels she works in an amazing and hard working environment where her love to help people in need shines through. And she hopes to keep making people feel more comfortable in their most vulnerable selves.
