Some questions we asked Josephine!

What inspired you to get into this field of work?
When my daughter was younger she required treatment from a Podiatrist which left me wishing I could help people like that too! I had always had an interest in medical matters and later study in Health Science naturally led me back to Podiatry.

How do you keep active?
I have recently got back into Ballroom and Latin American dancing – having previously loved it as a child. I also enjoy the occasional mud run, park run, jumping off waterfalls, bike rides and walking my dog Wilfie.

What do you do outside of work?
I have a beautiful family and care for my lovely Granddad. When I can, I love sneaking off to the gym, preferably to sit in the sauna!

Tell us a fun fact about yourself?
I’ve always loved hedgehogs and this year I started volunteering with a hedgehog rescue.
