We asked our administrator Joanne Moss to share her Health First story, so over to you Joe:
Who knew that an ingrowing toenail could lead to the perfect part-time job? That is exactly what happened after a visit to Health First with my son in April 2019 and meeting Jonathan and Kate. That month, one of their long-term receptionists had retired and they were just about to advertise for a replacement. Having spent 16 years working in the legal profession and specialising as a Debt & Insolvency Lawyer, Podiatry was something I knew nothing about, but I was intrigued and keen to join the team.
Within 3 months of starting work at Health First and working with Jonathan, his expertise, commitment and enthusiasm to provide excellent foot care rubbed off and I was enrolling onto a 12-month course to become a Foot Health Practitioner (FHP) at The SMAE Institute. Having Jonathan as a mentor and with extra time to study during lockdown 1.0, I completed all 12 modules quickly and passed my final theory exams. Unfortunately, COVID measures repeatedly postponed my clinical training opportunities and they were finally curtailed when I heard that I will be leaving Southam with my husband’s job within the next year.
