Tracy was born in Canada and grew up and trained in England. She is married to her soulmate Grant and they have seven children. Tracy completed a Biochemistry degree and then her primary medical training in England. This gave her a more in-depth knowledge of the human body than most Doctors are required to know. She then worked as a GP before doing further post-graduate training in Sports and Integrative (Wellness) Medicine and Nutrition. Her decision to specialise in Integrative Medicine partly evolved through her increasing awareness of the impact of nutrition and environment on her own personal and her patients health and well-being. Whilst working and raising her family she became unwell and experienced the frustration of conventional medicine not being able to provide a solution for her healing. It was then she discovered the power of Integrative (Functional) Medicine. This combines the best of conventional and complementary medicine and biochemistry to treat the root cause of poor health. With her own health experience and being a (recovering) ‘perfectionist’ Tracy takes your health very personally!
