Katrina brings to Highett Podiatry a wealth of knowledge and over 16 years of private
practice experience. A Mentone local, she grew up and attended school in Bayside.

Katrina is enthusiastic about all aspects of podiatry, including general foot care, ingrown
toenails, senior foot care, and paediatrics. She has a keen interest in biomechanics and the treatment of sports injuries, complimented by a vast knowledge of footwear and orthotic prescription.

Katrina enjoys working with our paediatric patients, particularly in treating Sever’s in-toeing gait and toe walkers. Katrina also prides herself on a solid treatment plan for plantar fasciitis and heel pain, which results in outstanding patient outcomes. Katrina is also very proficient in nail surgery and the
resolution of ingrown toenails.

Katrina is committed to providing all her patients with the highest level of care to achieve
their goals. She is also always dedicated to furthering her knowledge to help her patients.
She regularly attends APODA conferences and seminars and stays up to date with the latest research in podiatry through continuing professional development.

Outside of podiatry, Katrina is busy spending time with her family, including her three
children, Ruby, Zoe, and Harvey. She also enjoys staying active by running and going to the gym. She loves spending time with friends and trying to get to the odd football game when she can….. and we don’t hold it against her that she is a Collingwood supporter.
