Having qualified in 2016 with an BSc in Podiatry from Queen Margaret University, I extended my studies to complete my honours year; in which I qualified with a 1st class degree in June 2017. For the past year I have been working within the private sector where I have developed my skills and knowledge in all aspects of Podiatry.
I have a particular interest in musculoskeletal injuries, I believe this stems from my competitive dancing background. Nineteen years of this strenuous physical activity took its toll on my body, especially my poor feet. Therefore, I feel that I can personally relate to and understand my patients’ experiences and injuries.
Continuing my learning and enhancing my skills are key focuses in my development as a Podiatrist. I have recently gained accreditation in steroid injection therapy, and will participate in further continual professional development. Working with the public to provide a friendly and professional service is very important to me, the sole elements of my treatment come from evidence based practice.
Outside of podiatry I am a keen sports enthusiast, keeping active is a big part of my life. Originally from Northern Ireland, I am keen supporter of Ulster and Ireland Rugby, although I occasionally cheer on the Scots as it is now my second home here. Attending shows is another hobby of mine, I spend quite a lot of time singing along (quite badly) to musicals at The Playhouse.
