Dr. Jackson, ND, grew up in Lynn Valley, North Vancouver. She earned her Bachelor of Arts Honours in Health Studies and Global Development from Queen’s University, and her Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine from the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine. She has a particular interest in the politics of health and illness, emphasizing the social determinants of health, public health policy and promotion, and the benefit that preventative healthcare can have in our communities. She has a passion for evidence-based medicine and academic research, having presented and been awarded for both her independent and course-based research. This includes the Kay Herman Essay Prize in gender studies from Queen’s University, and publication in the Naturopathic Doctor News and Review.
Dr. Jackson’s personal objective as a naturopathic physician is to provide autonomy; to give you the ability to advocate for yourself and your loved ones. By educating the patient about the
underlying causes of disease, they have the power to make their own choices regarding their health – one that offers personal empowerment and better quality of life. She will support you with evidence-based dietary advice, supplemental care, and laboratory testing to create an effective and sustainable protocol that takes into account your personalized values, needs, and goals.
While Dr. Jackson takes a proactive approach to health by focusing on prevention, she believes integrative healthcare is essential for patient success. Conventional and alternative medicines
complement each other, and utilizing them together can often bring better outcomes. It allows practitioners from all areas to work together as a team, bringing medical doctors, naturopathic
physicians, chiropractors, and the like together. By focusing on prevention, not only does quality of life improve, but it can help us save millions in healthcare dollars.
