Kate Rhéaume (1974-) was born and raised in the West Island of Montreal, Quebec. She followed her lifelong interest in health and nutrition to McMaster University, where she completed an honors degree in Biology, with an intention to pursue a career in conventional medicine. After spending much time in the University hospital Kate decided that something was missing from the conventional paradigm of medicine. Upon successfully resolving her own health challenges with natural medicine, Kate turned to Naturopathic medicine as a career and never looked back. She graduated from Toronto's Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2002 and was selected for the coveted residency program. Kate spent two and half years on the CCNM Academic and Clinic Faculties as a teaching assistant, guest lecturer and clinic supervisor. After a maternity leave Kate joined Natural Factors Nutritional Products as an educational spokesperson. In this capacity Dr. Kate travels across Canada lecturing on many topics related to natural health. She is a frequent guest on television and radio and a sought-after, engaging speaker. Dr. Kate now makes her home in Ancaster, just west of Hamilton, Ontario with her husband, son and Great Dane.
