Hello, I'm Kathryn

I graduated with a first class honours degree from Brighton University in 2002.


Prior to joining The Orchard Clinic I have had my own successful podiatry practice in West Sussex for nearly 20 years. I regularly attend courses and conferences to continually update my professional knowledge. 

What made you want to be a podiatrist?

I grew up in a family of health care professionals so always knew I would work in a caring profession, I was just unsure which specialism. My older brother is a physiotherapist and he introduced me to the role of a podiatrist. Podiatry presented as a career with autonomy and huge variety in scope of practice. It was also an area of health care where the need for our services would only increase with time, due to the increase in our aging population. Having a patient walk in to the appointment in pain, and then leaving only 30 minutes later pain free is the best job satisfaction. Helping patients stay mobile, and independent is hugely satisfying.

What strengths or skill sets do you have as a podiatrist?

I graduated over 20 years ago so I am confident in treating the full spectrum of foot issues, whether it’s a young child with heel pain, a retired person who has developed diabetes, or a runner who is training for a marathon and needs support to succeed in their challenge. I would say My skill sets are in biomechnics, verruca treatments and general foot care.

What do you enjoy outside of life as a podiatrist?

Having recently returned to living back in this area, from 22 years living in West Sussex, weekends are spent exploring the local countryside with my husband and 5 year old daughter. We love the outdoor life, and when we get the opportunity, enjoy trips away camping in our bell tent.
