Outside the Officec
Dr. McDonough grew up in Lakeshore, a small community in southwestern Ontario, where he attended a French elementary and secondary school (he is bilingual in French and English). He and his wife Ashley live in Kingston East and are enjoying life with their two adorable little boys, Ronan and Graham.
When he’s not working, Dr. McDonough likes to be active outdoors: playing hockey, cycling, skiing, and running. He and Ashley also enjoy exploring new cafes and restaurants, and are always open to new recommendations.
Dr. McDonough and Ashley also love to travel! Having had the wonderful opportunity to live abroad in Ireland for five years, they spent many weekends and holidays traveling around Ireland and different parts of Europe. They are planning to do more traveling around Canada now that the boys are getting older.
