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.

The most efficient and professional service ever. In less than an hour I was paired with a dermatologist who prescribed the medication required. A thorough consult and knowledgeable MD who made everything easy. My pharmacy had the prescription faxed in no time. I definitely see myself using the service in the future.
This was the best thing i've ever come across. I downloaded the app and one hour later had completed an appointment with a dermatologist who then faxed over 2 prescriptions to my pharmacy. I have been dealing with a terrible rash on my face since March with no hope in sight of getting into a dermatologist. When I found this app I was skeptical, but can honestly say it has saved my face, I am already seeing an improvement after 1 week.
Possibly the easiest way to meet a Dermatologist!
After getting a referral from our family doctor to see a dermatologist we were still waiting after 5 months. In frustration, I turned to the internet to look for options and stumbled across GetMaple. Wow…..saw the dermatologist within 24h and everything since has been very smooth.
Loved that I could speak to a doctor within 24hours. The dermatologist was quick, knowledgeable and listened to my concerns! Will definitely be using again!
Within 4 hours, I was connected to a dermatologist in Toronto who quickly diagnosed and prescribed a combination treatment. My prescription was ready within one hour for pickup.
The whole experience has been so quick and easy! I was told it would be 9+ months to see a dermatologist in person. With this service, I was able to speak with one in less than 24hrs and I already have been sent the prescription I need.
We followed their sleep advice yesterday and our baby Dia had a good night's sleep for the first time in weeks.
I've been watching Koble sessions while I pump at night. It makes pumping way better.
The best part of Koble for my partner and I was to connect with their sleep coach expert Aidan and her personalized advice was great! Now our baby sleeps much better, as do we!
