Maria Tuvillo – Patient Support Assistant
I have worked for almost 2 years at the Hoffman Centre for Integrative and Functional Medicine as a Patient Care Assistant.
Working at the Centre is amazingly fulfilling and rewarding. My accomplishments include being of service to patients and improving my work performance, but I have also immensely benefitted from the knowledge I have gained from Dr. Hoffman. I am always in awe of how Dr. Hoffman spends quality time with every patient and devotes so much time to research. His work is beyond amazing. Working with different patients with complex issues is challenging but worthwhile. I am happy and proud that I am supporting patients and helping them to live healthier and happier lives.
I am beyond blessed to be working with such an incredible doctor, supportive co-workers, and wonderful patients.
Cathy Pascau – Patient Support Assistant
I studied Accounting at Tarlac State University and took a Computer Course in the Philippines. I came to Canada in 2008 enrolled in the Health Unit Clerk program at Robertson College, graduated with honors and was recruited to work at The Hoffman Centre. I am the mother of three beautiful children who are as adventurous as I am. We like finding different parks and nature reserves for walks. We love all kinds of hikes, whether in the mountains, on city trails, or in neighborhoods.
Working at the Hoffman Centre is challenging yet rewarding. No two days are ever the same. I get great satisfaction knowing that I can make a difference in someone’s life, and I love the opportunity to learn every day from Dr. Hoffman.

I studied to be a Medical Office Assistant because I wanted to change my career. I graduated in October 2017.
I enjoy being part of the team at the Hoffman Centre. It is satisfying to be a part of a team that is helping people.
Marie– Claude Beaulieu – Patient Care Coordinator
I am a medical professional certified in Holistic Nutrition (CHN), having graduated with a certificate of Distinguished Merit from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in 2009. I have also been on the Board of the Canadian Celiac Association for more than 4 years, and I Chair its Education Committee.
I have great admiration and respect for Dr. Hoffman’s expertise, his extensive breadth of knowledge, and his compassionate and conscientious approach to assisting and guiding his patients further on their health journeys.
Tammy Glenn RNBN—Clinical Nurse
I have been working in the field of healthcare for more than 7 years and started out in integrative medicine right after graduation. I have been very passionate about the field of Functional Medicine since being on my own path to wellness.
When not working, I enjoy dressage, yoga, and furthering my spirituality with anything in the metaphysical realm.
I enjoy living a healthy lifestyle and believe that to truly heal, one must get to the root cause of disease and not just simply treat the symptoms. I feel I bring a calm and compassionate energy to each of my patients, and I am deeply inspired by all their stories.
Jane Prescot, RN– Clinical Nurse
I began my journey at the Hoffman Centre as a patient. I experienced firsthand the Functional Medicine approach that helps patients identify the root causes of their diseases and provides the tools that helps them regain their health.
My personal experience as a patient has given me a passion to help others who have chosen a functional/integrative path to address their own health challenges. My special interest is empowering clients to take an active role in their health and wellness.
Erin Mitchell – Medical Lab Assistant
Having worked in the medical field for the past 15 years, I saw a great need for a change in our current healthcare system. Being an avid fitness and health enthusiast all my life, I often felt conflicted working in the mainstream medical field, which does not always discover the root causes of illnesses. I felt I was contributing to the problem, rather than being part of the solution.
At the Hoffman Centre for Integrative Medicinme, I now have the opportunity to work in a field in which I wholeheartedly believe in, and I feel I am making a difference in the world. I finally feel fulfilled in my career.
Amanda Guzman– Neurofeedback technician
I have been working with Dr. Hoffman for over 11 years and continue to be amazed at the dedication that he offers everyone.
In 2011, I was offered the amazing opportunity to train as a Bio- and Neurofeedback Technician. Over the years it became obvious how much this type of treatment is able to help patients with their health goals.
I decided to return to school so that I can eventually offer additional complementary treatments. I am currently completing my Bachelor of Science with a major in psychology, with plans to complete graduate studies in psychology.
Jade Stein – Neurofeedback technician
I received my Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience from the University of Lethbridge in 2017. Since a young age, I have been interested in what shapes the individual. This curiosity has fueled my passion in neuroplasticity – the brain’s ability to change through experience.
Neurofeedback is a non-invasive long-lasting technique that exploits the brain’s intrinsic ability to adjust to its own feedback. Every day, I work with clients of diverse backgrounds, each of whom has unique needs. Using my knowledge of the brain in conjunction with neurotherapy, I love to help each client become the best version of him or herself.
I enjoy working at the Hoffman Centre because this kind of self-optimization is reached at all levels, and my area is just one piece of the puzzle. Everyone who walks through these doors is different, so at the Hoffman Centre, we take the time to get to know you – all of you.
