Touka graduated from the Midwifery Education Program at McMaster University in 2021. Having been raised in Hamilton, she’s excited to continue working in the community she grew up in and in the city she calls home. Touka knew she wanted to work in healthcare, and began her education journey in Nursing before pursuing Midwifery. Touka is passionate about client advocacy, and has worked with the Midwifery Education Program and Association of Ontario Midwives towards racial equity in healthcare and education. In addition to English, Touka speaks Arabic because of her Iraqi background.
In her free time Touka enjoys soccer, reading, and live music (and will listen to any and all music or book recommendations!).
