Kirsty Carmichael  B. Sc. (Honours) PodiatryKirsty website profil headshot

Kirsty grew up in Scotland and graduated with Honours from Glasgow Caledonian University. Kirsty’s first professional posting was in a busy Sydney podiatry practice where she worked for a couple of years. Kirsty was persuaded to move west to be closer to family here. 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 ingrown nails and plantar warts. You’re in very good hands with Kirsty’s gentle care and attention.

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.
