Our aim as a collective is to make a difference when children are young or in their pre-teens through health education and preventative measures to see a healthier, happier population overall. Dr. McKenzie shares a passion about wellness and is a n invaluable addition to our team. It was a personal family condition that ignited her interest in medicine.
