We’re huge fans of podiatrists, our designer is one! What was it that made you want to be a podiatrist?

I became a podiatrist because when I was in yr 12 I was competing at national and international level in springboard and platform diving and I developed an injury (stress fractures in my shins). This was extremely painful and prevented me from doing what I loved. After seeing a few people I was finally referred to a podiatrist who diagnosed my injury and set me on a management plan which led to my recovery. I was so thankful to be able to compete again that I decided I wanted to become a podiatrist, so that I too could help people continue to be active and doing what they loved most!

What is your favourite part of being a podiatrist?

I enjoy so many aspects of podiatry but what I love most is the variety. I never know who’s going to walk through the door and I love helping people of all ages and all fitness levels to achieve their goals. Everyone is different and therefore so is my approach which means no two days are the same!

What are the most common foot problems you see in your female patients?

The most common condition I see in females is heel and Achilles pain. It’s a frustrating and multi-factoral condition which means we need to address all factors contributing to the injury.

What features of FRANKiE4 do you think could benefit your female patients?

Features of FRANKiE4 shoes which really benefit the female population are their thick and soft innersoles. So many women’s shoes don’t have removable innersoles and they don’t offer enough cushioning or shock absorption leaving our feet tired and sore by the end of the day. You can wear FRANKiE4 shoes all day in comfort and know you’re getting the right support too.

How did you like your FRANKiE4s?

I really enjoy my JENNis, I can wear them with my work clothes or on the weekends with a skirt! To find shoes that are fashionable and comfortable is a win win!

In three words describe what FRANKiE4 means to you? 

Versatile, Comfortable and Trendy.
