Born in Melbourne, Ruth spent her early years working as a nurse at the Royal Children’s and Mercy Maternity Hospitals, before moving to Canberra in 1980 to work at the Royal Canberra Hospital in the Neonatal Intensive Care Nursery.
In 1988 Ruth journeyed back to Melbourne to study Podiatry (B.App.Sci) at Melbourne’s La Trobe University.
Ruth joined Footcare Associates in 1991, and apart from spending a year in the USA, has been with the Footcare team ever since.
As a nurse Ruth specialised in children’s care, as a podiatrist Ruth has worked with and treated all age groups. As the decades have past Ruth now specialises and has a particular interest in geriatrics and diabetic Footcare.
Now grading slowly to retirement Ruth enjoys seeing many regular clients, whom she has often now known for 2 decades or more.
