I joined Basildon Podiatry in June 2020 just as we returned from being in lockdown. I had already started training prior to the pandemic and was a little nervous to begin with especially as I had been at home for a while, and I knew that things were going to be different at the surgery. I was put at ease by Sushila and Simone and was able to fulfil the role of front of house support and receptionist with no issues at all.
I have embraced the footwear aspect of the role and I now understand the various footwear needs of our patients and can confidently support Sushila or any of our Podiatrists when they require their patients to be fitted with appropriate shoes, sandals, or slippers.
I am learning all the time and I am amazed to see people coming in in pain with their feet or legs and leaving pain free. I have, over the months began to get to know our regular patients and look forward to having a chat with them. Sushila and her team at the practices in Billericay and Romford are a sociable and friendly bunch and I am looking forward to spending more time with them as we come out of the pandemic.
My hobbies are travelling (when allowed!) theatre, reading, spending quality time with my daughter and regular attendance at quiz nights.
