Maureen is one of the friendly faces you will first see when you come to Footprints Podiatry Centre.

Her friendly and warm nature are a great asset to our clinic and many of our patients come to their appointment early, just to have a chat.

Maureen takes care of all our front of house duties including booking appointments, taking payments and sorting all the paperwork! As a former primary school teacher, she brings many valuable skills to the practice.

In her spare time, Maureen is an avid reader and enjoys seeing the latest movies. She has a great collection of books and movies and is known to loan these to our lovely patients.
