I grew up on the far north coast of NSW, where sunshine and surf was part of the language! It was through this love of sports and competing that I had my first experiences with injuries. At the time these injuries involved frustration and debilitating pain, however they created a passion in me to help people who also experience lower limb pain.
Fast-forward 20 years, and I decided to become a Podiatrist, completing a Bachelor of Podiatry degree at Newcastle University.
I believe it was through my own personal foot experiences, which pushed me to find a career that I can be so passionate about. Finding the best possible treatments for my patients gets me out of bed in the morning.
I love being a Podiatrist! It doesn’t really feel like a job to me as I truly enjoy helping people with their foot problems, and find it so satisfying when my patients leave the Turramurra clinic feeling better than when they came.
