My name is Kirsten and I'm lucky enough to live in the beautiful Orkney Islands with my husband and 2 boys. I have been a practicing Podiatrist since I qualified in 2001. I am a 'people person' and love working with my patients. I enjoy doing routine appointments covering nails and skin and have a special interest in Shockwave Therapy and Soft Tissue Massage, really enjoy helping people to recover from soft tissue injury and pain. I am constantly adding to and updating my skills. Keep an eye on the website for details!
I'm always working at keeping up to date with clinical practice and I intend to keep expanding my scope of practice by undertaking regular Continued Professional Development (CPD). This means I'm continuously adding more "tools to my kit" so I can offer my patients more treatment options.
