I always knew that I would end up in the health professional world. Helping others by improving their health and quality of life provides one with meaning and self-worth. Podiatry may seem like a peculiar choice to most, but to me it offers a vast career and future. A podiatrist gets to treat the very young to the very old. All aspects of foot health are covered including skin & toenail conditions, pain & injuries and foot conditions resulting from chronic diseases such as diabetes.
I grew up in the Riverina, NSW, and relocated to Melbourne to study podiatry at La Trobe University. After 2 years in Horsham, Victoria, I moved to Canberra and worked at a multidisciplinary practice gaining further appreciation for my health professional peers.
Outside of work, you will find me exploring Canberra, sailing, volunteering, gardening and cooking up a storm with a special interest in preserves.
