Having trained in Manitoba, Dr. Asplin returned to BC to open her family medicine practice in 2014.  After a few moves around the Victoria area, Dr. Asplin is pleased to have a permanent home at Three Cedars.   

Her clinical interests lie in all facets of longitudinal family medicine.  She enjoys developing a thorough understanding of the unique circumstances of every patient and using that knowledge to identify and treat health conditions that may not otherwise be identified.  Dr. Asplin is a passionate advocate of longitudinal family medicine and has been involved in efforts to improve access to longitudinal care for unattached patients. 

 Dr. Asplin highly enjoys teaching medical students and residents, as well as providing mentorship to pre-medical students.

On her downtime, Dr. Asplin enjoys spending time with her husband, three young boys, as well as her loveable Bernese Mountain dog, Griffin.
