Podiatry Assistants (aka ‘Arch Angels’)


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 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!




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. 


One of our much loved podiatrists is moving on soon and we are keen to find another podiatrist who is happy to embrace our practice values of service, integrity and kindness and who will have the clinical skills to deliver gentle pain free treatments.   Back home in Palmyra and in beautiful new  premises, 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 and you want to develop your own area of clinical excellence, you may be the special person we are looking for.
