Principal Podiatrist | Clinical Director

Our podiatrist, Nicola, brings a unique skillset and diverse knowledge base to Enable Podiatry. Since graduating from the University of Newcastle, Nicola set a course of gaining experience and expertise across a variety of settings.

Nicola has a passion and keen interest in diabetes and the management of the high-risk foot. This interest has been nurtured through appointment within multiple high-risk foot departments across Sydney and Newcastle. Nicola has been fortunate to work alongside some of Australia’s pioneers in diabetes, vascular intervention and orthopaedic surgery.

In addition to Nicola’s in-depth experience within the public health industry she has also worked alongside podiatric foot and ankle surgeon Dr Haydar Ozcan. Through assisting Dr Ozcan with surgeries and also collaborating with him on patient cases Nicola was able to understand the complexity of foot and ankle surgery and how these procedures are utilised in the management of foot pathologies.

Education is an area of passion for Nicola, educating both patients, stakeholders and also current and future clinicians in the areas of foot health. Nicola currently mentors and supervises students from the University of Newcastle, Charles Sturt University and University of Western Sydney.

By incorporating evidence-based practices into her treatment plans this allows Nicola to ensure the best care is delivered to her patients each and every time.
Professional development is critical in maintaining currency within healthcare, Nicola holds additional qualifications in dry needling, advanced wound management, dementia prevention. Nicola is undertaking post graduate study to become a diabetes educator and to obtain endorsement for scheduled medicines through La Trobe University.

When Nicola is not in the clinic or at the hospitals she is a keen cyclist, scuba diver and coffee connoisseur.
