About Elise Stevenson
Prior to studying podiatry, Elise worked as a Phlebotomist, but felt the need to become more involved in the overall care and treatment of patients. At first she wasn’t sure what to do, but soon found podiatry and realised it would be the perfect fit for her. While studying she discovered that she loved it so much the is now also undertaking an honors program that involves research of Peripheral Vascular Disease, chronic wounds, and the diabetic foot.

During her clinical placements, Elise developed an interest in all aspects of podiatry, but found a particular passion in diabetes, chronic non-healing wounds, and painful corns and ingrown toenails. In her free time, Elise is also passionate about animal rescue and spends time fostering dogs. You may often see her down at the local beaches with her rescued pup.
In her “spare” time, Elise is busy completing her PhD at the University of Newcastle.
Elise’s areas of special interest are: High risk foot, diabetes management, wound care, general nails and skin care, ingrown toenails, wart management and biomechanics.
