2014 will be remembered as another enjoyable, busy and productive year for us at PEAK Podiatry Subiaco.

How would you describe your experience being part of the Peak Podiatry Team?

What are you enjoying about Podiatry?Busy, exciting and fulfilling. Peak is a unique practice in Perth in that much of the focus is on sports podiatry. So far my experiences have allowed me to further develop skills while providing me with amazing opportunities. The team at Peak has been very supportive and are great to work with.

I am enjoying the wide variety of cases and conditions I have seen at Peak. There is never a dull moment which is keeps me inspired. It is very rewarding seeing people with injuries recover and get back to doing things they love.

What are your outside interests?
I’ve played Hockey in both Perth and Albany since primary school and still love it. I enjoy playing in a team as well as the social aspects that come with it.

Favourite food?
Without a doubt this would have to be chocolate. I have always been a chocolate lover!

Favourite holiday or dream destination?
My favourite holiday so far would have to be skiing in France in 2013. It was such an amazing experience and I can’t wait to go back sometime in the future.

Favourite sports team / event?
My favourite event would have to be the Australian Open. I love sitting down in the afternoon to watch it in summer. Go Nadal!

As always we are grateful for any feedback and only too happy to answer any queries.

Happy running and walking from Team PEAK.
