Make a difference
'The thing I enjoy most about my job is the day-to-day contact that I have with families and being able to make a difference in a child's life. There's no real way to describe the feeling that emanates when a child looks you in the eye and thanks you for helping them. I'm very, very lucky working as a paediatric podiatrist; my job satisfaction is very, very high every single day. And even in those children with chronic illness we're still able to thankfully make a difference to their wellbeing and quality of life every single day.'
A rewarding career
'The patients I see in the Alice Springs Hospital are generally facing some very significant health challenges. If I can use my skills as a podiatrist to prevent amputation then I'm stopping a cascade of events that can seriously affect people's quality of life and life expectancy.'
