We are so excited to have Hilary join the team at Nimble Podiatry in 2022! Hilary will be working with us on Thursdays, starting at the end of January. Below she has shared a little bit about herself and her career as a Podiatrist so far.
Hilary Harrison (née Byrth)
Bachelor of Podiatry (UniSA) Professional Certificate in Clinical Education (UniSA) Graduate Certificate in Chronic Condition Management (Flinders University)
"I completed my Bachelor of Podiatry in 2015 and moved to the South East as a new graduate.
In the 6 years living in Mt Gambier, I worked as a public podiatrist for the Limestone Coast Local Health Network (previously Country Health SA), and in a private podiatry practice servicing the Limestone Coast and Western Victoria. Since 2020 I’ve worked as a part time Academic and Lecturer in the Department of Rural Health at UniSA.
I enjoy all areas of podiatry and have worked with a range people including chronic conditions or varying abilities, paediatics, neurological, vascular insufficient, dialysis and cancer patients. I have a strong interest in chronic condition management, paediatric podiatry, biomechanics and high-risk foot and wound care. I have a passion for patient centred care, and a focus on empowering patients to achieve their goals.
Some of my career achievements include SA Health Leading Clinician Alumni, Country Health SA Young Achiever of the Year Finalist, and Limestone Coast Local Health Network Leading Practise Award and Young Achiever.
In January 2022 my Husband (a Murray Bridge guy), border collie Wally and I are moving back to Murray Bridge. We are beyond excited! In my free time you can find me spending time with loved ones, travelling, trying new places to eat, or walking Wally.
See you in the clinic soon!"
