We’re excited to welcome an additional member to our podiatry team, Ellie Jakins-Kelly.
As you may have realised, it has become pretty busy around here, and wait times for podiatry appointments with Bradley have been getting longer. So we interviewed more than ten really excellent candidates to expand our team and the result was the clever, energetic and effervescent Ellie Jakins-Kelly.
After school, Ellie was on a mission to study Physiotherapy or Occupational Therapy when circumstances caused to her to stumble across Podiatry, and she was hooked! She studied a Bachelor of Podiatry at the University of Newcastle, and as part of her studies completed placements at the Western Sydney Hospital High Risk Foot Clinic and a Paediatric Podiatry Clinic at Queensland Health. Until joining us she was working with the experienced team at “The Foot Clinic” in Canberra.
Outside of University, Ellie has been heavily involved with gymnastics on a local, national and international level for more than 19 years, holding advanced certifications in both coaching and judging. She is perhaps the most flexible podiatrist on the Central Coast! Her significant experience with both sport and children has given her a particular interest in Paediatrics and Sports Medicine.
Ellie’s books are now open for new patients or for existing patients. Call us on (02) 4323 9100 for an appointment. Ellie will be at both our Wyong and West Gosford clinics.
Ellie’s areas of special interest are: Biomechanics (the study of human movement and locomotion), General Paediatrics, Orthotic Therapy, all aspects of general podiatric care including Warts, Ingrown Toenails, Diabetic and Neurovascular Foot Assessment and Wound care.
