Our Team

Dr Kathryn Nicol – Principal Podiatrist and Practice Owner

Kathryn started Feet 4 Life due to her passion for providing good quality podiatry care. Her interest in feet and legs started with years of ballet and dance. In the winter months she loves to snowboard and summertime prefers to be outdoors running or on a beach. Kathryn is a keen traveller who lived in the UK for 4 years, improving her podiatry skills and knowledge, while visiting as much of Europe as she could. She currently performs in a Calisthenics Maters team and is a qualified level 1 Calisthenics coach.

Kathryn has a keen interest in nail surgery, biomechanics and the paediatric foot. She is a member of Sports Medicine Australia and enjoys traveling to conferences and updating her knowledge and techniques. Kathryn recently gained her endorsement to prescribe scheduled medicines through the Podiatry Board of Australia. Following a two year long process of combined theoretical and clinical practice, her endorsement represents an advanced scope in the pharmaceutical management of a range of podiatric conditions. This allows her to provide more treatment options and faster access to medication for her patients and their foot pathologies. The medication she can prescribe for foot problems includes: antibiotics, antifungals, pain relief, cortisone injections and various types of anaesthetics.

Outside of work Kathryn is kept busy looking after her family, with three young boys, and a schnauzer called Albert. They all keep her on her toes.
