I have a nice long French name and prefer the first one to be pronounced with the accent, so to avoid all confusion I go by Steph. Coffee is the reason I get out of bed, though I’m equally partial to red wine, dark chocolate, and hazelnut gelato. I live in Ottawa with my partner and our cat, where I spend my days in class or clinic and my evenings in choir rehearsal or studying in coffee shops.


I’m on a journey towards balance – in health, relationships, and conscious living, to name a few. Here you’ll find poetry and personal anecdotes about my life as a medical student, sometimes-musician, world traveller, and woman learning to navigate this world.

Why “Northern demoiselle“?
