I have lived in Prestonpans most of my life. My mum is from here and I love my home town and East Lothian. I play Cricket and love watching sports such as Football, Baseball and Ice Hockey. Keeping in touch with and seeing friends is hugely important to me and I enjoy being outdoors when I can.
I qualified from Queen Margaret University in 2009 and began working for the NHS along with my private work. I left the NHS when plans came to fruition to open our clinic in 2018, the biggest step in my professional life.
My special interest in Sports Podiatry and MSK (Musculo-Skeletal) injuries and I continually look to develop my skills. The gory side of Podiatry is something else I love and I am lucky to have been able, and continue, to deal with a lot of wound healing and in Nail Surgery.
I live and grew up in the Scottish Borders. I love he scenary 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.
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 beauiful 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.
