When not working, or being a taxi for her 2 children, Jen sings in a choir and goes running several times a week.
After working as a medical secretary for many years, Cathy fulfilled a lifelong desire to become a Podiatrist, graduating in 2012 with a 2:1 Honours degree from Salford University. She worked in both the NHS and private practice before leaving the NHS in 2015 and joining the team at The Foot Room.

Since opening, Sarah has got married and become a mum to cheeky little fellas who keep her busy when not at work. She also loves to socialise and travel.

If she stops talking, you will probably find her eating biscuits (dark chocolate digestives are her favourite). When Alice isn’t doing any of the above, she loves spending quality time with her daughter.
Kath qualified from The Northern College of Podiatry in 1986. She worked in the NHS for 29 years and since 1991 worked exclusively within a High Risk Foot Team. Kath left the NHS to begin work at The Foot Room in 2015.

He loves his work and study, which takes up most of his time, but his new true love is his baby daughter.
Jen started work at The Foot Room in 2011 when the youngest of her 3 children started school. As they grew, her working hours also grew and she now works 3 days. When not working you can usually find her renovating her house with her husband, tap-dancing and generally running around after her family but not all at the same time!
Carole joined The Foot Room team in 2014 after a 33-year career with the Fire Service. She is married with children and grandchildren. Carole loves travelling and weekends away and when she can fit it in she loves to go to the gym.
