FOCUS:

Cassandra Hope has loved all things wellness and fitness-related as far back as she can remember. Her passion and dedication to her work as a health coach began after years of being a body builder and professional fitness competitor, where she experienced a lot of health issues due to overtraining and hyper-restrictive eating. This is when she decided to attend the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition to become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist. Once she learned how sensitive our body systems are to chronic stress, she decided to further study the nervous system and how to heal it, and in turn, our bodies and disease presentations.

She has spent the last 10 years researching how our accumulated stresses in life negatively affect our ability to effectively process nutrients, chemicals and toxins as well as stress-based neurochemicals, and therefore provide a comprehensive and well-rounded approach to self-healing that always begins with learning to regulate ourselves.

With all of her clients she takes a trauma-informed approach to any recommendations she makes, meaning she always prioritizes accessibility of her suggestions based on your past experiences.

Creating functional, tangible, and empowering protocols is her true passion.

“I believe that we all deserve to feel healthy, energetic and pain-free, and the road to achieving that after periods of illness can often feel overwhelming. It's my dedication to provide custom, relevant, and sustainable programs for you to incorporate into your lifestyle.” -Cassandra

founder story

Blazing a new trail for the future of naturopathic medicine and integrative wellness.

Founded by two Naturopathic Doctors, with over a decade of combined experience, longév clinic was brought to life by a shared dream and an unwavering dedication to helping patients improve their quality of life and to provide evidence-based solutions for longevity.

The Longév story began at Queen's University — where founders Dr. Kate McLaird + Dr. Nadine Khoury instantly formed a friendship and have been inseparable ever since. Finding sisterhood and support in each other, the two doctors attended naturopathic medical school, developing a shared dream to one day open a clinic of their own.

“Opening our own clinic has been a long-time dream of ours. We've always dreamt of creating a space unlike anything out there, an unconventional, state-of-the-art clinic that patients feel is a haven and a place that attracts the best practitioners out there.”
 
After years of working hard, honing their craft, and excelling as clinic associates, Dr. Kate and Dr. Nadine were driven to shake up the status quo, and provide more specialized and integrated care for their patients. longév was opened as a one-of-a-kind environment to make patients feel cared for through a comprehensive level of care, attention to detail, and commitment to their long-term health and longevity.
