Karen Purcell


Karen is especially talented holding two degrees. A Bachelor of Nursing and a Bachelor of Health Science Masters in Podiatric Practice. Karen is Lynette’s partner in crime and co-founded The Podiatry Group.


Karen’s favourite part of her job is helping children. She is able to keep those tiny feet in check with her super Podiatry powers. She has a special ability to help her patients feel comfortable, especially the young ones and also loves to treat sports injuries.


Always up for a challenge Karen isn’t afraid to dive into those complicated cases. When she isn’t busy helping someone she can often be found in the tea room pinching the communal biscuits!





Daniel Schlegel

dannyDanny graduated from La Trobe University with a Bachelor of Health Science and Masters in Podiatric Practice. He is the latest addition to this hard working, foot-pain fighting team of Podiatrists!


Danny loves Podiatry because of the great satisfaction that children, adults and the elderly get when their feet are feeling great. He enjoys all aspects of Podiatry, from managing musculoskeletal injuries, helping children through their lower limb developmental stages, to relieving both young and old of painful skin related pathologies.


Through Danny’s experiences in retail and playing sports, he meets a wide variety of people who need care for their feet but don’t have the answers or resources to do anything about it. It is Danny’s goal as a Podiatrist to educate and support those that have been struggling from day to day to help keep them on their feet! Feet aren’t the only thing in Danny’s busy life. He enjoys producing music, playing futsal, and getting involved in community volunteering through his local church.
