Dr. Ashley Smith

Dr. Ashley Smith grew up in Toronto where she trained as a respiratory therapist. During her tenure as a respiratory therapist in the ICU at Vancouver General Hospital, she truly began to understand the impact that good community care can make on one’s wellness and health outcomes. Dr. Smith decided to return to school with the hopes of becoming a family physician, and completed her medical training as well as family medicine residency at the University of British Columbia. Dr. Smith continues to practice full scope family medicine but has a keen interest in primary care obstetrics and addictions medicine. When she’s not delivering babies, she prefers to be outdoors, where she enjoys open water swimming, running, and rowing.
