Get to know me
"I believe in the importance of multidisciplinary treatment to address foot health issues."

Read My Bio

Ana is a Canadian Certified Pedorthist,
B.A. Kin., C. Ped (C).
Ana graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University in 2011 with a degree in Kinesiology. Then, she continued her education at The University of Western Ontario in the Pedorthist program in 2013.
Ana has worked along side orthopaedic surgeons, in the assessment and care of various foot and ankle conditions. She has experience working with diabetic ulcers, amputations, toe deformities, and more commonly seen conditions such as plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis, and metatarsalgia.
She enjoys working within a multidisciplinary setting as she believes that by having access to physiotherapy, massage therapy, and other modalities it can facilitate a more well rounded treatment plan for a patient to reap long term benefits.
The focus of Ana’s assessment involves a biomechanical gait analysis, joint range of motion testing, strength evaluation and a patient history to establish the cause and effect of a patient’s pain. If a custom orthotic is suggested she will cast the patient’s feet and work with the orthotic lab to create a fully customized orthotic to offload the main areas of discomfort.
When not working, Ana enjoys spending time with her husband, family, friends and travelling.
