Nazde was born in Turkey and immigrated to BC with her family at a young age. She completed both her undergraduate degree in biology and medical degree at UBC. She is excited to be joining the Queen’s EM family for the next 5 years and calling Kingston home. She is continuing to explore her academic interests but is passionate about diving medicine, medical education and critical care.
In her spare time Nazde can be found running, riding her bike, and learning to boulder. When she isn’t outside, she can be found baking treats and trying new recipes in the kitchen. She is looking forward to traveling again so that she can continue to SCUBA dive with her favorite underwater creatures.
