    Was it what you dreamt of doing growing up?

    What made you choose podiatry?

    Are you respected?

    And do you regret it?

    Hi Tyson,
    It's a tough one to answer in a post. Our profession has it's challenges, negatives and shortcomings. the flip-side is also true as I've thankfully manage to build a fulfilling successful career of 13+ years. Having mentored a number of new grads over the years, I find the best way to answer your questions is finding out who you are. Because once you understand who you are as a person then your goals/ambitions are much clearer. Start with getting to know yourself and build from there. Our profession has much to offer, but only if know who you are and what you want.

    Good luck on the journey!

    Joseph.

    “Was it what you dreamt of doing growing up?”
    No, I had never heard of podiatry until I was 24.


    “What made you choose podiatry?”
    Watching a podiatrist carefully enucleate a painful corn from my terminally ill mothers` foot. Her tender touch and care bowled me over.


    “Are you respected?”
    Yes, by those who matter.


    “And do you regret it?”
    Nope. I have no regrets in life.
