During her long career as a board certified physician and leader, Dr. Cherilyn Hanna-Mahase says, “I’ve been driven by the belief that keeping people healthy and well leads to happier families, longevity, and productivity.” Her initial inspiration came from having a grandmother who was a midwife. With her own patients, Dr. Hanna-Mahase gets to know them and takes a holistic approach—considering mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. “My favorite part is motivating them to make healthier choices and actually seeing better outcomes and quality of life.”
In her time off, Dr. Hanna-Mahase likes to relax with family, read, exercise, and travel. Niagara Falls has been her favorite destination, and she hopes to visit Australia soon.
