Dr Andrea Lewis was born and raised in Vancouver. She spent many years at UBC, but still found time to satisfy her enthusiasm for adventure with travels to Africa and Australia. Her love of the outdoors enticed her to Newfoundland where she completed her Residency in Family Medicine and where she met her husband. Together they have raised 2 beautiful daughters and in 2014, they spent 6 months in Vanuatu providing medical care to the populace of the remote tropical Island.
Dr Lewis has been involved in the establishment of the South Island Division of Family Practice and the Saanich Peninsula Primary Health Care Society, both of which have been very rewarding processes. She feels honoured to act as the Medical Director of Peninsula Medical and looks forward to being a part of the development of a new approach to Family Medicine.
