Keeping Active in Tasmania Episode 7

Rob Hermann June 29, 2020 50


Background
share close

Her exemplary level of concern and care for others is only matched by her deep religious commitment and belief in God

Born in Mount Barker, South Australia, moved to a farm at Baker’s Beach in Tasmania at 3 years of age. She has a wonderful childhood spending hours and hours with her pony and all the wonderful things that a farm offers for a child.

Memories of farm life; really lovely Mum and Dad, the bush and isolation, travelling 60 km each way to school, horses, dogs, chickens and pigs, no electricity, kerosene lamps and an outside “dunny”.

 

Career

“I became a podiatrist because my grandfather was a chiropodist. I could see the affection of the patients and I decided at a young age that I wanted to do this”

“Podiatry is a very needed profession for keeping people on their feet and encouraging them to look after their health and helping people with pain”

“I had mature mentors behind me, and I was able to forge ahead at an early stage of my career and had quite a big practice very quickly and the community supported it 100%”

She is not scared to take a risk and push things

“I think you can calculate things and then you can be fairly sure that if you have done your best at it, it is worth stepping out there”

“Podiatric surgery is one of the things I have had a real desire to see happen”

Exercise

“I did enjoy an organised gym situation with a personal trainer, but horse riding has been the biggest consistent thing in my life”

Facing adversity

“Working through difficulties so you come to a point to say, “I am an overcomer”
