Meet our Podiatrists

Sole Podiatry first opened in Pascoe Vale in 2009, by Sarah Warton and Jessica O’Neil after they saw a need for quality foot and ankle care in the local area. In 2012, the girls expanded to a secondary clinic in East Keilor and also welcomed along Nicole Vartto, Emily Pearse and Lidia Ambrosino to the team.
