Danielle Harasymow

Danielle is a certified medical office assistant with 10 years of experience in the administrative field. Her professional passions include anticipating needs, managing day to day workflow, and interpersonal communication. Danielle loves building rapport with patients and helping them feel cared for, which makes her perfectly suited for her role as Office Administrator at Philosophy MD.

Danielle originally hails from the small town of Haliburton, Ontario, where she developed a love for nature, animals, and the simple things in life. Over the years, she has tried her hands at a variety of vocations (including working at an art gallery, as an adoptions officer at the Oakville Humane Society, and even owning and operating her own cafe), and has lived in a variety of places (including Oakville, Etobicoke, and Banff). In 2002, she moved to Victoria where she now lives with her husband, two amazing children, and her Abyssinian cats. 

Danielle is a bookworm who loves fine art, photography, scary movies, and roller coasters, though she hates surprises in general. When she’s not hard at work at Philosophy MD, you’ll likely find her hiking, enjoying the abundant nature that the island has to offer, or baking gluten free goodies (her mother used to own a bakery in Tory Hill, Ontario called The Gingerbread House, so she comes by it honestly). The way to her heart is coffee, chocolate, and animals. 

Martine Vincent

Martine comes to Philosophy MD with over 5 years of experience in the spa and cosmetic industry. She originally studied Business and Spanish in University, and even moved to Ecuador for a time to learn to speak Spanish fluently. 

Martine loves working with her patients at Philosophy MD to help them reach their skincare goals. She believes that knowledge is power, and is passionate about educating individuals on the treatments and skincare available to them, and discovering what might help each of them achieve their healthiest complexion. She believes that focusing on skin health and quality should be the number one goal, and that there’s nothing wrong with investing in treatments to help you look and feel your best. 

Martine has never had a pet, but would love to have a Husky or a Miniature Bernedoodle one day. When she’s not helping patients build individualized treatment plans at Philosophy MD, you’ll likely find her spending time with her friends, at a local happy hour, or at the beach.  

Martine’s favourite skincare products? SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF, Blemish + Age Defense, and ZO Skin Health Complexion Clearing Pads.

Tierney Landels

Tierney is a certified medical aesthetician and skincare expert. Trained in several medical aesthetic devices, she brings many years of cosmetic experience to her role as Medical Aesthetician at Philosophy MD. 

The decision to become a medical aesthetician came very naturally to Tierney, thanks to a longstanding fascination with the beauty and skincare industry. She recognized the value of proper skincare from a young age, and knew this passion would lead her to a career that never felt like work. Leaving her hometown of Campbell River to attend Aesthetic School in Saskatoon was the single best career decision she’s ever made. Tierney is so thankful to have the opportunity to share her passion for skincare, and to continue to educate herself and her clients at Philosophy MD.  

When she’s not helping patients achieve healthy, glowing skin, you’ll likely find her being creative with her newfound love for pottery, exploring the outdoors of beautiful British Columbia, or spending time with her family, friends, and her kitty Earl. She also loves relaxing, and you may even catch her napping! 


Cierra Tottenham

Cierra has been a Registered Nurse since 2018 and obtained a Critical Care Nursing Specialty in 2020. Prior to joining the Philosophy MD team as an Aesthetic Nurse, Cierra worked in the intensive care unit at the Royal Jubilee Hospital.

Cierra has always had a passion for skincare, and the confidence aesthetic medicine has given her is something she wants to share with others. When you schedule a treatment with her, you can expect to be won over by her attention to detail, strong assessment skills, and her positive attitude (be warned, it’s contagious!). 

When she’s not at the clinic empowering patients with self-confidence, you can find Cierra on local hiking trails or lounging at home with her partner and her dog (probably with a bag of chips).

Cierra’s current favourite skincare product? The ZO Skin Health Growth Factor Eye Serum.
