Born and raised in Winnipeg (and quite proud of it), Riley is one of the Saskatoon EM graduates and always happy to field toxicology and pharmacology questions. Starting university with a goal of following the family tradition of being a Civil Engineer, Riley made the move to Calgary to ski, hike, and pursue medicine on the side as a member of the class of 2016 (Go Narwhals!). Riley has an interest in playing keeper in soccer, and other outdoor activities like backcountry cycling and camping with his fluffy Goldendoodle Angus. He has special interests in Quality Improvement, Toxicology, and Pharmacology. He will be completing his Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology fellowship at PADIS in 2021-2022.
