I started TiredSole™ in 2012 when I completed my FCN course with Foot Care Kingston and loved the course so much, I then took the Educator course. I have been working along side Foot Care Kingston and Cindy for the past 5 years, first as an Clinical Assistant in Kingston and then by hosting my own Part 2 (Clinical) courses at TiredSole™ in Ottawa.
I have been an RPN for 25 years and have worked in hospital settings, LTC and residential care settings, as well as acute care and geriatrics. My last position before becoming a Foot Care Nurse was as a wound care champion and oncology chemo symptom management nurse. Initially, jack of all trades and master of none, now I am master of one!
TiredSole™ started small providing mobile services, with no real goal in mind but to help those who needed affordable foot care. I opened the clinic location in 2014 as the business grew, where I was able to offer additional services for lower extremities such as compression therapy and laser treatments for pain relief, fungal nails and wart removal. I am proud that we have grown into this amazing clinic treating patients of all ages, while continuing to provide mobile foot care services throughout the Ottawa area!
The main location is over 4000 square feet and is able to house a comfortable and relaxed setting for Part 2 (Clinical). We are large enough that we offer two days of free foot care for every Clinical, thus allowing the Part 2 Foot Care Nurse students ample hands on care practice experience.
