About Us / Our Team

Kia Ora!

Welcome to Kiwi Paediatrics! We are a close knitted, compassionate, general community paediatrics office. Our excellent doctors specialize in the medical, behavioural, and developmental care of your child. As per Alberta Health’s policy, to see any of our paediatricians, all patients need a referral from a family physician.

Our Mission

Our objective is to provide all families with excellent care that meets the expectations of those we treat. We look forward to working with you and your child!

Our Team

Dr. Dan Ross

Pediatrician
Dr. Ross is the Kiwi of the group with 20 years experience in developmental and behavioural pediatrics. His patience and compassion are a favourite among the staff and kids alike. He loves photography, and will spend hours taking pictures anywhere he can! However his favourite part of his job is to chat about video games (especially Halo) with his patients - where he learns all the best strategies!



Dr. Amanda Evans

Pediatrician
Dr. Evans is a pediatrician from England with 18 years of pediatrics under her belt. Since coming to Canada she has worked hard to learn all the important Canadian skills like ice skating and skiing. Her favorite toy to play with is Lego, which she loves to play with her son. She is a mother and mouseketeer all in one! Watch out when she heads to the Magic Kingdom, if she sees Mickey you better get out of her way!



Dr. Lindsay Stockdale

Pediatrician
Dr. Stockdale is interested in a broad spectrum of pediatric conditions and splits her time between caring for kids at Kiwi Pediatrics and at the Alberta Children's Hospital. When she's not working she is spending time outside with her two young boys skiing, biking and hiking (she's looking forward to a time when they are old enough that she no longer has to tow or carry them). She loves to read so whenever there is a quiet moment between work and kids you are sure to find her curled up with a good book.


Dr. Shaila Zaver

Pediatrician
Dr. Zaver sees a wide variety of pediatric conditions. In addition to her practice at Kiwi Pediatrics, she also sees children at the CUPS clinic, and sees the newborn babies at the South Health Campus. She completed her General Pediatrics residency training at the Alberta Children’s Hospital. She is also involved in teaching at the medical student and resident level through the University of Calgary. She spends her time outside the clinic running, doing yoga, reading, and most of all, travelling!





Dr. Candace Rypien

Pediatrician
Dr. Rypien is a Pediatrician with extra training in Infectious Disease and Immunology. She has a close working relationship with both the department of Immunology and Infectious Disease at the Alberta Children's Hospital. She also teaches at the Medical School in Gondor, Ethiopia. When not in Alberta working, she also does medical work in New Brunswick, Saskatchewan and Ontario. Outside of work she enjoys travel, cooking, reading and has a mild obsession with boardgames and escape rooms. She is currently trying to learn French and perfect her cheese scone recipe. She aspires to become a dog or cat owner when she stops travelling as much.

Sarah

Sarah is the "sass-pot" of the front desk. She will always lend a helping hand, and has no issues taking you step-by-step through your questions (when she's not flying around the office). She enjoys putting her energy towards climbing mountains!

Jasmine

Medical Office Assistant/Reception
Jasmine is a "super sloth lover". She finished her Medical Office Assistant training through ABES. She'll talk your ear off about Pokemon and Star Wars so don't get her started! She uses her extra time to hang out with her dog Luka and ride horses (or fall off as Amanda says!).

Luka He is the vocal boy of the office. He loves his cuddles, scratches, and treats from all of his favourite kids! When he’s not napping at the clinic he is hiking mountains or frolicking at the dog park.
