I have always loved fixing things and solving puzzles, so Podiatry is perfect for me! I was born with a clubfoot, so I get some of the issues people have with feet: sore, ugly, embarrassed and I attempt to use my skills to make people feel incredible.
I love to play cricket, watch football, baseball and ice hockey, and have a passion for food. Geeky things such as Sci-fi are my favourites but I am always open to reading or watching other genres.
I am generally happy and chatty. I love to know more about people and am open about myself. My passion is having you leave feeling like you’ve had a chat with a friend and feeling transformed from when you came in.
BSc (Hons) Podiatry (Qualified 2009), MRCPod, Certificate in Soft Tissue Mobilisation, Certificate BCI Toenail Reconstruction, Medical Acupuncturist
I live and grew up in the Scottish Borders. I love the scenery and it is a wonderful place to raise my children. We are an active family and are regularly outdoors or at some activity for the kids.
I qualified from Queen Margaret University in 2011 and worked in private practice ever since. As well as a love for routine podiatry, I am keen in Musculoskeletal studies and Biomechanical issues such as pain caused on activity.
I have a focus and special interest in Podopaediatrics, an area of podiatry focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of Paediatric foot disorders and issues affecting the lower limb. In 2019 I began studying Paediatric Lower Limb Development with Staffordshire University.
BSc (Hons) Podiatry (Qualified 2011), MRCPod, Medical Acupuncturist
I am originally from near Belfast in Northern Ireland and moved to Scotland in 2008 to study at Queen Margaret University. I love Scotland, it is a beautiful country and there is so many wonderful places to visit around East Lothian. As we spent many family holidays travelling to Scotland it feels like home from home.
I enjoy crafts, reading, walks and exploring local places.
I have worked solely in private practice since I qualified and began working with Adam in 2013. I hope to always be approachable and organised, aiming to make myself, and the business, the best it can be.
I have a special interest in Cosmetic Podiatry such as Toenail Reconstruction and Warm Wax Therapy treatments, but, I love hands on care such as removing hard skin. I feel it is important to be upto date with the latest technology and techniques, so regularly look at the latest research for the best treatments, such as our Swift Machine.

Toenail Reconstruction, Medical Acupuncturist
Originally from Bolton near Manchester, although not officially a Scot, I moved to Edinburgh at the age of 18 and have spent all my adult life here. I worked in retail for around 10 years with a specialty in fitting technical footwear and from that role I found an interest in biomechanics and podiatric management.
I have been an avid skier from a young age and no matter the year I will always find time to have a wee trip away with the family. When not ‘fixing feet’, I spend most of my time as a taxi driver taking my children to and fro from activities. My daughter is a keen gymnast and dancer and my son, although only 6, is particularly good at tennis. He recently had a training session with none other than Judy Murray.
BSc (Hons) Podiatry (Qualified 2019), MRCPod, Medical Acupuncturist
I am from Donegal in the North West of Ireland, and came to Edinburgh to study Podiatry at Queen Margaret University. After graduation I began working in a busy private clinic in Dundee while working on a Masters Degree in Diabetes. I became interested in Podiatry from a young age having had a multitude of problems and regular visits to our podiatrist.
I am very outdoorsie, and enjoy spending my time in the beautiful hills around the local area and further afield in Scotland. Although I love to try new foods, I am not the greatest cook. But there is nothing better for me after a busy week than binge watching a box set with my boyfriend on a Friday night.
BSc (Hons) Podiatry (Qualified 2017), MRCPod, Medical Acupuncturist
Coming from the far shores of sunny Fife, and starting my working life as a Postie working for the Royal Mail. I came into podiatry from an interest in sports rehabilitation. However the diversity offered within the podiatrists role meant that I soon realised that I enjoyed the domicilliary care of helping patients who weren't able to routinely get to a clinic.
I am very active whether it's working out with my fiancé in the gym or going to the beach with my dog, Ninja. But watch out! Not only do I have a caring side but I also have a black belt in Karate, participating in a number of competitions.
BSc (Hons) Podiatry (Qualified 2019), MRCPod
My approach to health and wellbeing is client-centred; putting you at the heart of the your treatment programme and providing support and
advice as you work towards your goals, be it rehabilitation, prevention of injury, developing strength and endurance or just being able to
function day to day pain free. I believe strength is built from the inside out and incorporate stability, balance and flexibility methods
into my treatment programmes to support the body move as it is designed to.
In addition to being a Sports Massage Therapist, I am also a Personal Trainer and Pilates Instructor, which gives me a deeper understanding of how the body moves and how dysfunction can affect this.
Sports massage therapy is not just for athletes - everyone can benefit from the methods and techniques applied, particularly these days where we’ve had to spend more time sitting and working from home. Regular massage treatment programmes focused on muscles and/or muscles groups can help maintain or improve range of motion and flexibility, while rehabilitative massage can assist in the healing process and reduce discomfort after an injury. For those who are seeking an athletic treatment, pre and post event massage can be tailored to specific sports and movements; pre event massage can supplement the warm up process, enhancing circulation and reducing excess muscle tension prior to the event. It is also useful for mental wellbeing, enhancing concentration, calming nerves and improving focus.
Post event massage focuses on removing the build up of waste products that occurs with exercise, enhancing the body’s own recovery
process while reducing the risk of injury through overused, tired and stressed muscles.
