Hi, I’m Sarah. Nice to meet you!
I am a country girl at heart – originally from Ballarat. I moved to Melbourne at 18 to take on uni life, studying podiatry at LaTrobe University in 2004! Moving to Melbourne was a great step for me, I learnt valuable life lessons early that started me on a path of independence and self sufficiency. I have always been very interested in Health Sciences – having participated in many sports at school such as AFL, cricket, Basketball and dancing. I loved the importance of health and fitness and find how the human body works very fascinating!
While studying Podiatry, I worked at Sportsco and developed a love for runners – my wardrobe is testament to that and would much rather be wearing the latest from New Balance than any other type of fashion shoe! My final year of university I was lucky enough to travel to London for placement which cemented my career choice as I was able to explore all facets of podiatry and work under many experts in the field before graduating – Oktoberfest was an integral part of my research!
Together with Jess I took the giant leap into founding Sole Podiatry and haven’t looked back! From a fresh faced 23 year old to now I still find a lot of enjoyment in delivering quality health care to my patients and enjoy all facets of podiatry including treatment of ingrown toe nails, paediatrics, sports and rehab as well as catching up with my regular patients for general treatment and a good old chat about life!
What continues to motivate me in podiatry is when a patient presents with a debilitating injury and through personalised assessment and management plans – seeing their quality of life improve with treatment modalities implemented. Podiatry is forever evolving as a profession and the future of fabulous foot care is exciting.
If i’m not at work, I love spending quality time with my 3 kids at the park, holidaying at our home away from home in Torquay or cheering on the Navy Blues on weekends.
