Dr. Cecilia de Martino was born in Montreal and was fortunate to have lived in the Philippines and Germany. While in Germany she became fluent in German and her frequent visits to family in Italy allowed her to master the Italian language as well. Once back in Canada, she completed her high school diploma in Cambridge and then obtained her Bachelor of Science in Technology in Pharmaceutical Chemistry from the University of Guelph. After having worked in the lab of pharmaceutical companies she realized this wasn’t the path for her. She knew she wanted to be in health care and after seeing how naturopathic medicine helped her mother when no other doctor could, she was intrigued. She fell in love with the naturopathic philosophy of treating the mind and the body and so finished the 4 year full-time program at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto which included a year internship at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic and a term at LAMP Community Health Centre in Etobicoke. Dr. de Martino also preceptored with numerous leading Naturopathic Physicians who have acted as mentors and teachers.
Currently, Dr. de Martino is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario and a member of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND) and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND).
