Special interest areas in podiatry include paediatrics and general. I really enjoy the social aspect of podiatry and the satisfaction of helping people find more comfort so they can keep active and doing the things they love.
Interests outside of work include spending time with my little family. I have two gorgeous little girls Harper and Milla. We enjoy getting outside and finding adventures in parks, such as kayaking. We also love swimming lessons!
