I first came into contact with podiatry through injuries and recurrent pain which developed during my junior sporting days. My podiatrist made a huge difference in my life by enabling me to continue playing and competing in the sports I loved. When it came time to think about a career I thought it would be great to be able to assist people in the same way by helping them stay active and achieve their sport and exercise goals. Outside of work I enjoy a relaxed day at the beach or enjoying live sport and music
How I keep active
I have always aimed to maintain an active lifestyle by playing both competitive and social sports as well as maintaining general fitness activities. I have played competitive cricket since age 5 and this gave me an opportunity to play as an 'Overseas' whilst in England several years ago. My goals for 2019 and beyond are to increase my running volume and distance in both road and trail runs.
Education and qualifications
I studied Podiatry at Queensland University of Technology graduating in 2011 and have worked in Brisbane and the West Moreton region since. With an active interest in growing and improving my knowledge and skills I maintain memberships in the Australian Podiatry Association, Australasian Academy of Podiatry Sports Medicine and Sports Medicine Australia. I am also enrolled on the Australian Podiatry Association Specialist Sports Podiatrist Program.
