Let's meet Olea Health's professional and dedicated health team


Naturopathic Doctor

Monika Lukacena-Russo, BSc, ND


Monika was born and raised in Sault Ste. Marie, ON. She has always had a passion for healthy living and a desire to inspire others, which lead her to Naturopathic Medicine. She completed her Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Toronto, specializing in Human Biology.

From there, she spent a few months in Poland and Slovakia, studying natural ways to treat infertility and Women’s health concerns.  She then furthered her studies at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, completing the 4 year Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine Program, with practical experience at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic.

Monika established Olea Health in 2008, Wasaga Beach’s premier Naturopathic Clinic. Monika now maintains a part time practice, full time clinic management, and full time mom. As an ND, Monika is passionate about working with people and delighted to share her knowledge with the community. She would like to inspire people about taking charge of their health and help them better understand their role in disease prevention and health promotion.

Monika lives in Wasaga Beach with her wonderfully supportive husband and amazing son and daughter. She enjoys yoga, Stand Up Paddle boarding (SUP), cooking, painting and spending time with her family and friends.
