Kirsty Carmichael

Kirsty’s first professional posting was in a busy Sydney podiatry practice before she was persuaded to move west to be closer to family. Kirsty is a keen photographer. She enjoys our beautiful West Australian beaches, though she’s not too fond of our jellyfish. One day soon Kirsty hopes to have her own wee doggie as she misses Whisky, her family West Highland Terrier back in Scotland.

Kirsty’s clan motto is Tout Jour Prest, which means “Always Ready” and Kirsty’s ready right now to care for your painful feet. Kirsty is completing a Diploma in Fitness so she is very happy to assist with your sore gym lower limbs. You’re in very good hands with Kirsty’s gentle care and attention.

 Podiatry Assistants (aka ‘Arch Angels’)

Emma

Dip Remedial Massage

Emma grew up in Darwin, so she is full of top end stories and tourist tips. Emma moved to Perth to complete her Diploma of Remedial Massage and enjoyed that so much, now she’s launched into Health Science as well! Emma loves all the opportunities Perth offers, including dance and art classes, but she still misses a special Darwin curry she hasn’t been able to find in Perth.

 

Hannah

Hannah grew up in a small town two and a half hours east of Perth. She is currently completing a Bachelor of Science at Curtin University majoring in Nutrition so she’s keeping us all at our healthy eating best! In her downtime from work and study, Hannah loves to sew and makes a lot of her own clothes, the more colour the better!

 

Cindy

Cert V Massage & Beauty Therapy

Cindy loves helping people and worked for many years as a beauty therapist. She lives with her husband Vince, children Tiana and Anson and their furry family including  Capri and Taya (both rescue dogs)  and Revs the German Shepherd. Cindy has recently realised her dream of having a home with enough open space to foster and rehabilitate rescue dogs, so soon the four legged members of her family will outnumber the two legged ones.

Fern

BSc Hons (Biology) Dip Prac Management , CPMAAPM

Since co-founding Feet First with Wes in 1998, Fern has worked steadily to improve patient experience and care. Behind the scenes, Fern keeps the practice clockwork whirring. As practice manager there’s a new puzzle for her to solve every single day! Fern says, “It’s a real pleasure to be part of the solution helping people with sensitive feet so they can get back to doing the things they love.”

Fern loves walking along the river or at the beach with one eyed Miles, the gypsy-pirate rescue dog.

 

How Would You Like to Join Our Team?

We’re all about improving lives through better foot health.

We’re growing steadily and we’ve just moved into a sparkling new practice so we have plenty of space for our growing team.

Our practitioners are high calibre, experienced and gentle folk who are supported in all their clinical endeavours by a skilled and energetic support team. Our podiatrists and support team work closely together so when we invite someone new to join our team we prefer folk who are looking for a secure, long-term commitment whose skills will grow and develop with the practice.

Now we’re back home in our beautiful new Palmyra practice, we have oodles of extra space for our growing team. If you are an experienced podiatrist with well developed clinical skills and an enthusiasm for helping people with sensitive feet, looking for a secure position where you can develop an area of clinical expertise, you may be the special person we are looking for.

We look forward to hearing all about you and how you believe you will contribute to our team efforts and make a real difference to the health and well-being of your patients.
