Dr. Daralyn Bates was born and raised in the Quinte area. After completing a pre-medical program at the University of Waterloo (HonBSc), she became intrigued by languages and life abroad. Over the next decade, between lengthy stints in Spain and Japan, Daralyn completed a BA in Speech Sciences/Linguistics at the University of British Columbia. Her exposure to other cultures and their concepts of health brought her back home to pursue a rewarding career in Naturopathic Medicine.
