Brad has always had a strong interest in making a tangible difference in people’s lives. With this in mind he originally began studying aviation in order to become a volunteer pilot for underprivileged people in outback Australia and around the world. This drive is also what led him to volunteer for a year at a mission school in Sydney in 2008.
This drive was then coupled with a keen interest in understanding how the human body works and in particular the incredible biomechanics of the human foot in 2010 when he began studying Podiatry at the University of Western Sydney.
Completing his studies at the University of Newcastle in 2013 Brad has been working closely with an array of complex diabetic feet within the high risk foot clinic of Hunter New England Health. This experience has set him up to manage a wide range of different foot problems and given him a dedication to seeing his patients problems resolved as thoroughly and efficiently as possible.
When he’s not tending to peoples feet, he enjoys jamming on his banjo, spending time with his wife and family or taking to the squash courts for a swing.
Brad draws a deep satisfaction from seeing the smiles on his patients’ faces after having their feet tended. He particularly enjoys working with peoples biomechanical needs and prescribing and modifying orthoses to fit those needs.
