Louisa Holub, BASc, MEng
Clinic Manager and President of Dove Medical Sevices
Louisa is the President and Co-Founder of Dove Medical Services, the parent company which operates Halton & Mississauga RAAM Clinic, and Clinic Manager. Prior to entering the medical field, Louisa worked in the fast-paced software industry for several years as a User Experience Designer/Researcher, Team Lead, and Project Manager for multi-national high-tech companies.
Louisa was first exposed to addiction and its devastating consequences during her travels to Central and South America as an engineering student. She witnessed first-hand how certain impoverished communities, which lack adequate addiction treatment services, were rife with broken families, domestic abuse, and poor mental and physical health due to a prevalence of untreated alcohol use disorder, among other factors. When the opportunity arose later in life to advocate for patients suffering from addiction in the Halton Region, she jumped at the opportunity to co-found and manage Halton’s first Rapid Access Addiction Medicine (RAAM) Clinic.
Halton & Mississauga RAAM Clinic currently has 5 convenient locations across Halton Region and Mississauga, and we continue to expand to better serve our population. Each location has free parking nearby.
