Francesca grew up on beautiful Gabriola Island, trail running, cliff jumping, and getting sea-sick on the ferry to school every day.
After completing her degree in Biochemistry at UVIC, she spent two years working with children on the Autism Spectrum. She was excited to move to Vancouver for medical school, and was quickly hooked on the coffee shops, breweries, and cocktail bars. After discovering her passion for Emergency Medicine she was determined to join the fantastic group at UBC.
When not having fun at VGH, you can find her in the back aisle of Carson’s books looking for a vintage copy of Harry Potter with a flat white in hand. Come find Francesca if you want to go for an evening neighbourhood run or join a book club!
