HEIDI BARTON (nee STACEVICIUS)

DIRECTOR / SENIOR PODIATRIST


Heidiwebsite2.jpgI'm Heidi, Director and Podiatrist at FootSense Podiatry. I purchased the Royal Oak practice at the start of 2012. Since then I have been the full-time podiatrist and director. In 2014 I was given the opportunity to teach in the AUT Podiatry Clinic, which I enjoyed thoroughly and continued until the end of 2016.

Before purchasing FootSense, I worked in the public sector, seeing diabetic patients, and giving them footcare advice in Auckland and Wellington. Wound and skin care is still an interest of mine, but I've been enjoying seeing a huge variety of biomechanical and general cases since joining FootSense.

My mission for FootSense (and the podiatry industry) is to make it an important part of mainstream healthcare. To do this I believe podiatrists need to advertise themselves better and engage with the public more. We have so much to offer! This is where the concept for our Botany Town Centre branch came about. It is estimated we have 4million visitors to the centre annually - that is a lot of potentially sore feet walking past our front door!

I love nothing more than to have a laugh with people, but I take the wellbeing of my patients very seriously. In my spare time I love to get out exploring with my husband and our labrador - Christa. I also love to read as a form of escaping the realities of daily life.

I look forward to meeting you, and to helping you with all of your foot care needs.

NADIA SORENSEN

PODIATRIST

I'm Nadia, Podiatrist at FootSense Podiatry. I'm here to diagnose, treat and maintain the foot health of my patients and aim to keep as many people as active as possible.

Before coming to FootSense, I studied a Bachelor in Health Science (Podiatry) at AUT University where I learned a broad range of podiatric theory and practical skills. Prior to study I spent 11 years in the military and enjoyed a balance of working, travelling and keeping fit.

Having enjoyed my student placement at FootSense Podiatry, when the opportunity came up to work here, I decided to come on board and join the team. What really attracted me to FootSense was the large variety of friendly patients that frequent the clinic, including biomechanical, paediatric, surgical and general care cases, which also gives me an opportunity to expand my own skills.

In my spare time I enjoy running and I like to get out and about exploring Auckland with my family. I am married and have two young boys who keep me very busy.

I look forward to working with you to help keep you active and feeling great!

RYAN KENNEDY

PODIATRIST


IMG_7160.JPG

My name is Ryan Kennedy, I am the newest member to join the FootSense Podiatry team. My role is to provide both podiatry treatment and massage therapy for the lower limb, back and shoulders.

I studied Bachelor of Health Science in Podiatry at AUT University for 3 years and have done a course in sports massage and rehabilitation. 

As a podiatrist I have developed an interest in diversity of treatment plans and individualising these plans to my patient for better health care outcomes. Especially when it comes to our legs and feet which can take a lot of our load throughout the day. My interests in podiatry relate to biomechanics and how reducing pain during gait can lead to a healthier lifestyle, as well as diabetic foot care, providing preventative methods and treatment plans for people with diabetes.

In my spare time I am heavily involved in sport (rugby & softball) where I play both at a premier and representative level. I also have a keen interest in fishing and the outdoors. 

I look forward to joining the team at FootSense and getting to meet you all!
