Presenter Bios:

Dr. Kerri Tomy works as a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Early in her career, she worked as a Consultant Psychiatrist for the Student Mental Health Resource Team at Manitoba Adolescent Treatment Centre (MATC). She opened a community practice in 2011. Throughout her career, Dr. Tomy taught a Post Baccalaureate course at the University of Winnipeg and various courses through the Louis Riel School Division Post Baccalaureate program. She has also worked as a consultant in LRSD and has been a speaker at various events.

Dr. Tomy recently completed a year long fellowship in Integrative Psychiatry and is starting another Integrative Psychiatry course this Fall. Dr. Tomy’s work interests include exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle medicine. She enjoys being outside and spending time with her teenagers (when they are willing)!

Dr. Michelle Warren received her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Simon Fraser University in 2000. Since then, she has been a professor in the Department of Clinical Health Psychology at the University of Manitoba for almost two decades where she supervises staff and residents mainly at MATC. She has run her own private practice with several associates since 2013 called Wise Mind. She has started numerous child mental health initiatives (including the use of technology). She is a provincial leader, publicly and privately, in the treatment of children’s anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Most of all, Dr. Warren’s passion is using technology to provide state-of-the-art treatment for anxiety disorders to youth in the post-pandemic era, particularly those who would not otherwise receive treatment.
