Dr. Kate Mehaffey
Dr Mehaffey was born and raised on Vancouver Island, and was lucky enough to spend a number of years exploring the rest of the country before settling back down here in 2016. She completed an undergraduate in Biology and Philosophy from Dalhousie University in Halifax, went to Calgary for her medical school, then came to Victoria in 2007 for her family practice residency. After residency Dr. Mehaffey spent 7 years practicing full service rural family medicine, and worked in a number of small communities throughout Ontario, BC, and NWT, including 4 years working in Fort Smith in the Northwest Territories.
She is thrilled to be back in BC and feels that there is no bigger privilege in medicine than to be involved in the birth process. She has 3 young children of her own who keep her busy, and when she has some extra time she enjoys doing anything active and/or outside, travelling, reading, and trying to stay mindful in the midst of life’s chaos. She looks forward to meeting many of you and to working with the wonderful group at Grow Health!
