Maria (Mav)

Company Director & Clinical Leader Podiatrist

Hi, I’m Maria, but you can call me Mav.

I am the Director and founder of Podiatry Services SA and am passionate about all things feet. I’m so incredibly proud to see this Company reach its goals and provide an all-inclusive podiatry service in SA.

I have worked in Podiatry for over 20 years, in various Clinical Leader and clinician roles. I love being hands on providing services in clinic and in-home and seeing my patients more mobile and pain free. My areas of expertise are working with complex foot conditions and working within the NDIS and Home Care Package space.

Aside from my clinical role, I enjoy supporting my staff develop their skills in all areas of the practice and organising another area of the business that I’m extremely passionate about which is the Locum service. Being able to find podiatrists for other organisations and businesses to ensure that the community is receiving timely podiatry care and finding work for podiatrists is extremely rewarding.

I have a keen interest in representing and advocating for the profession and I sit on various committees including the Board of the Australian Podiatry Association.

Outside of work I enjoy entertaining, cooking for the masses and spending time with my family and friends.

I graduated with a Bachelor of Podiatry at the University of South Australia in 2020.
I have a keen interest in all aspects of Podiatry, across all ages and am passionate about country health and general wellbeing.

Justin L.

Podiatrist

Hi, I’m Justin.

I’m new to Podiatry Services SA and delighted to be part of a growing and diverse private practice, so early on in my professional career as a Podiatrist. My various experiences in Podiatry care have allowed me to work in both the Private and Public sector.

I have a particular interest in Biomechanics and High-risk Podiatric care and believe that good quality service and foot care could have the ability to create a positive impact on all aspects of my patient’s life.

Alongside Podiatry, I have a particular interest in a wide array of sports, including basketball, badminton, soccer, squash, bouldering, rowing, running and electronic sports.

In the last 5 years, I also engaged myself in Badminton coaching at Saint Ignatius College. I thoroughly enjoyed this important role and found it exceptionally rewarding.

Ray L.

Podiatrist

Hi, I’m Ray.

I recently graduated in Podiatry in 2021 and am enjoying my time here at Podiatry Services SA and addressing the various foot concerns of all my patients.

My previous background is in Personal Training and a degree in Nutrition. Both these areas have impacted my experience and approach to providing quality Foot care & health. I believe that continual movement is the key to better overall health regardless of age and that means helping people stay on their feet.

Out of work I’m kept very busy by my 3 children, aged 2-7 years of age and my 4 adorable dogs. When I have the opportunity, I have a passion for short to middle distance running and playing badminton.

Tracey R.

Home Services Coordinator

Hi, I'm Tracey.

I am the Home Services Coordinator here at Podiatry Services SA.

From day to day, I schedule our clients in for their Podiatry Home Visits and liaise with a comprehensive list of home care package providers. My role also has me facilitating all the invoicing for all our Home Visit clients. My role can be quite diverse as I also assist at the front desk with reception roles.

I enjoy the atmosphere at Podiatry Services SA, it is always friendly and we all love having a good laugh with each other.

My step mum always said to me ‘If it does not stop the sun from rising the next day, it is not worth worrying about’. This saying has always stuck with me as it is so true. Everyone has enough to worry about without adding extra things on to yourself.

My favourite binge worthy show would have to be Yellowstone from Stan.

Laura F.

NDIS/ Home Services Team Leader

Hi I’m Laura.

I am the NDIS/Home Services Team Leader. I schedule the NDIS referrals and working with NDIS approvals for footwear requests to ensure that our patients are walking around with well supported and comfortable footwear and any products they may need for care. Some would say I’m the NDIS guru!

Prior to joining the awesome team at PSSA, I was in a similar role working in Paediatrics’ for Dept of Child Protection, Occupational & Speech Therapy. We’re a community base company that take pride with our delivery to these that need us. We don’t treat our patients as a number, we treat them as an individual and provide them the upmost care that they deserve.

I’m not one to sit still as reading a book isn’t my forte, so I do enjoy a good podcast! These can vary from professional development or a good fun Mamamia Out Loud!

Outside of my scope, I have 2 young energizer girls who keep me very busy with sports. I transition from a work to a sports mum very quickly. We enjoy family holidays as far as the eye can see. Summer is my favourite time of the year, and we enjoy family walks along the beach with our little fur baby.

We are the largest Podiatry locum service in South Australia, servicing hospitals, private practices and organisations across metro and rural locations.
Our locum talent pool is carefully selected through a rigorous screening process, which ensures that we provide the highest level of service to fulfill your Podiatry staffing requirements.
