A Little About Me:

I am an avid skier and previously represented England competing internationally as a slalom specialist and sponsored freestyle skier. My interest in Podiatric medicine stemmed from my love of sports and a prior job as a specialist ski boot fitter. This role included producing custom insoles for: ski boots, snowboard boots, running footwear and cycling shoes.

Whilst studying for my degree I was employed by the University orthotics lab to manufacture custom orthotics for private Podiatrists and faculty members.

I undertake regular research and professional development. Currently, I am studying to become a Member of the Faculty of Podiatric Medicine for the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons (Glasgow).
