Welcome to our Q&A series behind the incredible talent from the Health and Wellbeing Autumn / Winter 2021 campaign.
Meet Steve, an early rising business owner and Sports Podiatrist for the last decade. Quickly breaking the mould, Steven has no issues wearing his Havaianas and converses out and about. Steven is a highly competitive individual, loving all things sports including sprint training, cricket and football. One day Steve hopes to establish one of his clinics by the beach so he can have an excuse to wear his thongs to work.
What made you choose a career as a podiatrist?
Initially, I chose podiatry to be a stepping stone into starting physiotherapy. However, after my first year, I made the decision not to transfer. I really enjoyed the idea of learning a specific area of the body inside out.
What is the most rewarding part of your role?
The majority of patients I work with are those who are suffering significant aches or pains. The most rewarding part of my role is to see them walk out without any pain.
What is one item that you can’t live without?
My CAR! Without it, I couldn't take inventory, equipment, and most importantly myself between the clinics I work out of.
What would your ideal workwear uniform look like?
A nice polo shirt with chinos and super comfy shoes aka thongs.
Thank you, Steve, for being a part of our Health and Wellbeing campaign.
