Why I became a Chiropodist
I understand first-hand the importance of mobility and being able to lead an active, pain-free life in order to get the most out of your life. I aim to help you improve your foot health by providing thorough foot assessments, comprehensive treatment plans and evidence-based foot care.
Active runner and fitness enthusiast
I have completed 4 full and over 25 half marathons. Plus many other events of varying types and lengths. This year will be a busy year, focusing on my lifetime goal of completing all 6 of the Abbott World Marathon Majors.
In 2018 I completed the Chicago Marathon as part of team RMHC, and raised over $2000 for Ronald McDonald House Children’s Charity.
Previously in 2017, I completed the Toronto Waterfront Marathon and the New York Marathon. I was very proud to be part of a small group of participants selected to represent Canada in the New York Marathon Opening Ceremonies.
Special Interest in Treating Athletes of All Ages & Abilities
My primary interest is in treating runners and athletes of all ages and abilities, and I am truly blessed to be able to integrate my passion with my career.
I was not an athlete my entire life, I learned the joy of running after my second child was born.
Whether you are starting a new fitness regimen, seasoned athlete, or just living your daily life, I aim to help you move as painlessly as possible so you can be more active and enjoy all the wonderful activities in your life.
I am a registered chiropodist and foot care specialist and have been helping patients for over 20 years.
Are you uncertain about whether you should choose a chiropodist vs. podiatrist? Chiropodists and podiatrists provide the same care. There are 600 registered chiropodists in Ontario and only 60 podiatrists. The College of Chiropodists of Ontario stopped using the name podiatrist in Ontario in 1993, over 26 years ago — but the name is still used in other provinces in Canada, also USA and UK.
Chiropodists today must complete 7 years of post-secondary education. We do complete case management of foot problems, assessing and treating the entire foot and its complications.

I provide full biomechanical exams and gait analysis — I will be able to help address your foot discomfort by foot care treatment, custom orthotics and orthopaedic shoes, surgery, medication, laser or physical therapy.
