Taimi Lynch was born and raised in Thunder Bay, Ontario and currently lives in Toronto, Ontario. Taimi’s interest in Fabry developed as a result of the experiences of her good friend who lives with the disease. Witnessing the effects of Fabry first-hand has opened Taimi’s eyes to how debilitating it can be on a daily basis. Taimi’s goal is to help increase awareness of the condition and to be an active and positive member of the Fabry community by helping to make the lives of people living with Fabry easier. She joined the CFA board in 2014. Her focus is to continue implementing unique programs for children, parents, spouses, siblings, and all those touched that need support.

Dr. Seema Kanwal - Board Member

Dr. Seema Kanwal’s journey to naturopathic medicine was motivated by her enthusiasm for learning and a keen interest in the human body.  She obtained her B.Sc from Simon Fraser University and joined the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Forensics Laboratory in Ottawa, Ontario upon graduation. She was drawn to naturopathic medicine after experiencing its benefits firsthand and began her training at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto. Dr Kanwal has been a practicing naturopathic doctor in Vancouver since 2006.  She is one of few naturopathic physicians to hold pharmaceutical prescription rights in British Columbia and one of the only naturopathic physicians in Canada to be trained in the Apo E Diet. She is also actively affiliated with the Lil Divas Fitness & Lifestyle Program for girls 11+. The program is dedicated to combating the increase in teenage obesity by educating young women on how to make the right nutritional choices in an often unhealthy environment.
