The question every patient loves to ask. Why feet…why Podiatry?
I’ve always known I would be involved in the heath field in some capacity. After four years of an extended Biomedical Science degree majoring in Physiology, Genetics and Biochemistry I was even more sure that my heart lies in a more clinical setting where I can interact with patients on a daily basis. I had the privilege of being accepted into different post-graduate health disciplines and it was a matter of personal preference. After doing some research I read that Podiatry is “the best hidden secret in Medicine”…so I decided to take the plunge feet first and accepted the offer for Podiatric Medicine at UWA.
How would you describe your experience being part of the Peak Podiatry Team?
It’s exactly what I hoped for in a progressive job. We see such a great patient base and an excellent mix of cases. I feel like we always have to stay sharp and up to date with the latest research. I love that!
Add to that the team is extremely pleasant and easy to get along with. Everyone is happy to share their knowledge and that makes us all better in the end.
Interests Outside of Podiatry?
Without a doubt my biggest interest is soccer. Have been playing since I could remember and I always feel at home on a soccer pitch. I’ve played State League in WA for many years and feel very proud of that. I used to also sketch quite a lot, but admittedly that has died off with time.
Don’t really have a favourite, love a bit of everything.

Favourite Sports Team?
I have been supporting Real Madrid ever since I can remember, thoroughly enjoy watching any of their games. In fact attending a home game at the Santiago Bernabeu is something I’ve always wanted to do, and hopefully will get the chance to do so.
I do follow the AFL as well actually and I barrack for the Freo. It has been really enjoyable to watch them grow from a new team to a well-established team. The long awaited premiership is coming soon I hope!
