Elyse is a Board Certified Nurse Practitioner who specializes in Primary Health Care and Medical Aesthetics.  In addition to owning and operating Brain & Body Co., she also practices part-time in Family Medicine. Elyse's initial degree was from The University of Guelph, where she received extensive education in human anatomy and pathophysiology in the Human Kinetics program; simultaneously, via the Sociology program, she developed an advanced understanding of social life, change, and human interaction. This university education equipped her with the knowledge needed to successfully enter and complete the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at The University of Toronto. Upon completion, she obtained several years of valuable career experience working as a Registered Nurse in Toronto, Ontario. Elyse eventually returned to the University of Toronto to complete the Masters of Nursing - Nurse Practitioner program in 2019.
