I started my working life in Marketing having graduated from Newcastle University, progressing on to a career with a computer hardware company. When I had a break to bring up my 2 sons, I knew I wanted a career change but it wasn’t until I returned to full time work that I developed an affection for the foot having done a Reflexology course just out of curiosity. The more I looked into the study of the foot the more interested I became and decided to enrol on a 3 year degree course at Salford University being fortunate enough to have negotiated a voluntary redundancy settlement
I gained a first class honours degree in Podiatric Medicine, Local Analgesia and Prescription only Medicines, in 2005 and worked initially as an Associate in private practice until I felt confident enough to start my own practice. 2 years later I started the clinic in Rainford, and 12 months after bought an existing practice in Sutton, both now known as Alpine Podiatry Practice. At the same time I qualified as a Podiatric Acupuncturist
I work full time at the Rainford Clinic, apart from Wednesdays when I work at Alpine Podiatry Sutton. My approach is to treat every patient professionally and proficiently with utmost respect - to make them feel reassured and welcome without adopting a blasé attitude. Also of importance is to recognise the need to refer on to another allied professionals as necessary
