"I was drawn to Podiatry as I wanted my work to be interesting, challenging and contribute to improving people’s health. I love helping people and seeing them achieve their goals and improve their quality of life. I have over 10 years experience treating a diverse range of foot problems and enjoy all aspects of podiatry from treating painful corns, calluses and toenails to helping diabetics and children manage their foot pain. I have a particular interest in biomechanics and video gait analysis and enjoy the challenges that come with treating sports injuries".
