Flexibility and lifestyle for Yukon GP couple

The broad scope of practice and flexibility offered in the Yukon allows my husband and I to have the type of practice that works best for us and our family.


We are both GPs, with special interests in different areas - anesthesia for my husband, obstetrics for myself. We are able to juggle a shared family practice, childcare and even sometimes end up in the OR together - flexibility that would be hard to find elsewhere. The amazing mountain biking, cross country skiing and sense of local community ensures a great work-life balance - we are never bored!
