About Me

Experience

Hello! My name is Natalie. I have been a Registered Practical Nurse in good standing with the CNO since 2011. I spent the first 7 years of my career as a nurse in LTC (specifically with Alzheimer’s patients) which was deeply rewarding. In December 2017, I decided to further my career and became certified in Advanced Nursing Footcare and further to expand my scope as a Podortho Nurse in 2021.

When I left LTC, I never anticipated this would become my passion, but it has turned out to be the most rewarding nursing I have every had the pleasure of practicing.

With 4 years of full-time clinical experience in the footcare industry and almost 10 years as a nurse, I am confident I can assist you with your footcare needs and work with you to find solutions for your ongoing foot health and comfort. I have a huge passion for helping people and making them feel their best. I truly enjoy the one-on-one time and therapeutic relationships developed with my patients and getting to know them as a whole. My nursing philosophy has always been to provide patient focused care rather than task focused care. I am a bit of a perfectionist and always ensure you care is done right, and is never rushed.

I strive to always update my education in the industry and offer the most innovative and effective treatment options for my patients in the clinic.

I understand that the general population are often embarrassed to seek help for their foot problems. If this sounds like you, I encourage you to contact me. Please remember, I am in this career because I absolutely love it, and I strive to make every patient who sits in my chair feel completely comfortable from the time they arrive until the time they leave. As the permanent tattoo says on my arm: “They may forget your name, but will never forget how you made them feel”. Those are words I live by every single day, with every single patient interaction. I truly hope to meet you soon!
