 Hillary Thompson qualified as a Podiatrist in 2006, graduating with a First Class Honours degree in Podiatric Medicine from Durham School of Podiatry.

She started her career within the Newcastle-upon-Tyne NHS Foundation Trust, where she stayed for over eight years. During this time, she became experienced in all areas of Podiatric care but has always had a particular interest in biomechanics, orthotics and, more recently, the provision of therapeutic footwear.

Like most women Hillary also enjoys buying shoes and her current collection would be the envy of Imelda Marcos; She hopes that she can encourage her customers to follow suite but with sensible shoes only!
