For Canadian Family Medicine Residents and Physicians 

Brooke is a first year family medicine resident at the McMaster rural site, Owen Sound.

Outside of medicine, Brooke enjoys running, playing video games, and hopelessly and endlessly cheering for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Alex Pearce is a first year resident in Collingwood, Ontario through McMaster. She completed medical school in Hamilton through McMaster and hopes to have a full scope rural family practice one day, hopefully including low risk OB. Other than rural medicine, her passions include snowshoeing, stories, and Dachshunds.
