Working for six years in a small town sports store in Whakatane, dealing with specialized shoe fitting by means of a foot gait, I was able to comprehend how footwear could assist people in their sporting needs and in pain reduction, whist corresponding to my lifelong passion for helping people. It was here that my passion was ignited leading me to Graduate Auckland University of Technology with a Bachelor of Health Science in Podiatry. Since then I have joined the Foot Mechanics team through admiration and respect for their strong values of leadership, experience and quality of patient care.

 On a personal note, I enjoy various outdoor activities including Tramping, Equestrian riding, Scuba diving, Fishing and Dance. This has lead me into a strong interest towards biomechanical attributes in the sporting patient, however my ultimate passion has been to help any individual in need that walks through the door; whether it be diabetic education/treatment, nail surgery or care, and assessment for any lower limb biomechanical abnormalities or pain.

 One thing I love about podiatry is that we are not just focused on the foot, but the entire lower limb, as everything is interrelated, thus permitting greater outcomes seen in clinic on a daily basis. I am now am mainly working from the Mount Maunganui and Whakatane branches, and look forward to getting to know all new and old clients.
