We asked Noelle some questions
Can you tell us more about your medical background and education?
I was a practising pharmacist for a number of years. I then went on to complete my training in functional medicine. I studied at the Institute for Functional Medicine, and am trained by Dr. Dale Bresden to assist patients with cognitive decline.
I’m certified by Green Shield of Canada for cardiovascular health coaching and chronic disease management. With functional medicine I enjoy helping patients get to the root cause of their health issues.
What inspired you to learn and teach patients about functional medicine?
My perspective as a pharmacist led me to functional medicine. Everyday I saw patients becoming increasingly unwell, despite having their symptoms treated with medication. I found my calling to help patients get to the root of their health issues, and ultimately create a healthier society.
What do you love the most about being a healthcare provider?
I love helping patients feel their best. This could come from treating hormonal issues, gut health, cognitive health, fatigue, and other imbalances. I can empower patients through education.
What’s your favourite part about practising on Maple?
I’m taking part in the future of medicine. Virtual care provides me with the opportunity to collaborate with an expanding team of the best healthcare providers. Maple offers a very streamlined process which allows for greater efficiency and convenience for both the practitioner and the patient. It’s exciting to watch the field of virtual care grow!
What’s the most challenging aspect of working in the medical field?
The way the universal healthcare system is set up doesn’t allow for enough proactive and preventative healthcare. There’s a lack of public education about preventative health, and how nutrition and lifestyle both play important roles.
Can you share a health-hack that has made your life better?
I have come to learn that sleep is vastly underrated. Your body regenerates during the first few hours of your regular sleep cycle. In many cases, a healthy circadian rhythm can restore wellness. Even symptoms of gut and cognitive issues can be assisted after a full restful sleep cycle.
What do you do in your spare time?
I love being in nature. It’s a great way to stay balanced and have some downtime.

Saves a lot of time compared to sitting in a doctor's office!
Legitimate and just as described, with fabulous doctors. Totally fills the late-night worry gap!
Not having to endure a long wait at a walk in clinic is fabulous. Especially since I have twin pre-schoolers to contend with.
The service is so quick and professional and saves hours spent in a walk-in-clinic. This is a game changer for busy moms and I recommend it to everyone!
Instead of my husband having to drag both kids to the hospital or walk in alone he was able to see a doctor right away and get a prescription faxed to our local pharmacy.
Our family has used this service twice so far and it has been amazing. Both doctors were friendly, compassionate and you never feel rushed.
Was concerned I wouldn’t be able to see a doctor without an appointment. I installed the Maple app, spoke to a doctor and had my prescription in under 30 min.
I used Maple for the first time today. It was quick and easy, took less than ten minutes including connecting time and the doctor was professional and friendly.
LOVE This service. Not only do you have a doctor within seconds but they are professional and knowledgable.
Absolutely blown away. It was SO easy to use. No wait time getting connected with a doctor. Getting the prescription faxed to the pharmacy made it a seamless process.
