PODIATRY SERVICES IN ASCOT VALE
Kath is a podiatrist with over twenty years clinical experience. A graduate of La Trobe University, Kath’s career has spanned over elite/international sports teams (in Australia and England), working with disadvantaged and homeless communities in the public sector, research, and supervising students.
Kath has mixed her clinical work with management as a Director of In Stride since 2007 and for many years leading a podiatry team in community health. Having worked with North Melbourne and Carlton AFL clubs, the London Towers basketball team and other international level athletes, Kath maintains a strong interest in sporting injuries and biomechanics. She has also worked in the paediatric setting for many years and loves helping young children with foot or foot related conditions (her inspiration for being a podiatrist came from seeing one as a child herself for shin splints).
Kath is returning to a small clinical load at In Stride whilst she works part time and looks after her two young children.
