Hi! I’m Aleisha!
When I was a young girl, I suffered with terrible ingrown toenails for years. It wasn’t until I saw a Podiatrist that I was able to get proper treatment and resolution. During the course of my treatment, I became interested in becoming a Podiatrist myself. When putting in my university preferences, the Bachelor of Podiatry was #1. Lucky for me, I got my first choice!
I completed my degree at Latrobe University in 2007 and immediately began working in private practice and have continued to do so. Private practice provides so much variety in the types of pathologies and injuries seen, which continues to excite and challenge me on a daily basis. I love all aspects of Podiatry, my favourite pathology is definitely ingrown toenails – the worse they are the more I enjoy treating you! I also have a keen interest in paediatric and teenage patients, the diabetic foot and treating all types of skin pathologies. I also enjoy using Shockwave Therapy as a method of treatment for your pain and sports injuries and I have recently done some further study and training in this exciting and effective treatment.
When I’m not working, I’m usually spending time with my husband and my three gorgeous sons. Between work and my family, there’s not a lot of time left for me, but when I do find time, you will find me l binge watching a good t.v. show while enjoying a glass of wine. I love to cook and spend lots of time in my kitchen cooking for my family and friends. My specialties are gnocchi and lasagna – anything Italian really! I also love to talk – so if you’re up for a good chat then make sure to come in to see me!
Some of my goals for the future are to partake in some further study to build on my Podiatry skills, read more books, learn Italian and take a family holiday!
I look forward to seeing you in the clinic!
