I’m a podiatrist who currently works at Liverpool Podiatry Clinic. As I studied nursing I felt like I wanted to move more into an allied health role to better facilitate a holistic approach to health and lifestyle for the broader community. Therefore I took the path to study Podiatry to forfill this vision. From a young age I had a keen interest in the mechanics of feet and the lower limbs, due to my father being an affluent shoe designer.
I’m so passionate about Podiatry and working with patients to achieve life changing results. My personal hobbies and interests are being outdoors, spending quality time with my family, friends and loved ones also yoga.
In my free time I love to read and learn more about my field and life in general. I see myself to be a life long learner who is always thirsty to aquire more knowledge. I look forward to working with you to improve your health and well-being.
