Experience

My approach is simple.

  • I work to provide the highest quality foot and ankle care
  • I provide friendly and approachable advice
  • My advice is always honest and tailored to your specific circumstances so you can make the best informed decisions

In addition to undergraduate training, I’ve completed a postgraduate diploma in sports and exercise medicine, done further studies in podiatric biomechanics and become accredited as a strength and conditioning coach.

I have experience working with international and national athletes to those who enjoy a good stroll around the lake, young children, through to a lovely 90 year old lady who still enjoys a round of tennis. I also regularly work in conjunction with physiotherapists, GPs, medical specialists and orthopaedic surgeons.

This broad range of qualifications and experience allows me to offer a complete foot and ankle rehabilitation service, from shoes and foot orthoses, through to exercise rehabilitation. Crafting treatment plans based on each patient’s individual needs.

Long appointments are standard, giving us time to best understand and manage your condition.

I’m also a LGBTQI+ friendly practitioner and follow the principles of the healthy at every size (HAES®) movement in my clinical practice.

Bio

I am the director and practice principal of The Rehab Podiatrist. I have worked with Patrick Doan in the past and excited to be sharing rooms with him once again. I am based in the Peak Performance Podiatry rooms at the City Centre Practice and Sportscare Canberra Barton. 

I’ve had an interest in a wide range of sports, previously participating and competing in kickboxing, volleyball, latin dancing and soccer.

Now with a young family, I’m finding time to fit in some squash, weightlifting and checking the snow cams during winter.

If you aren’t up for a chat, you shouldn’t talk to me about cooking, alternative music from the early 2000’s, board games or the best fantasy novels.

We are the centre of excellence in Canberra for bridging the gap between science and practical application of Sports & Exercise Podiatry
