062 - Nikki Grant Podiatry Is A Lifestyle, Not A Job

Nikki Grant is a third-generation podiatrist from Falkirk, Central Scotland, and she believes strongly that podiatry should be a lifestyle, not just a job.

Nikki works at Grant Chiropody & Podiatry, which was established 71 years ago by her Grandparents, who were both Chiropodists, and today she works with her parents, who are both Podiatrists, hence the business name.

As you would expect, with each generation came new ideas and therefore, the business has evolved and grown considerably over this period. Nikki has a passion for sports and biomechanics, which lead to the formation of a separate company First For Footcare

On this episode we discuss:

  • Moving from the NHS to her family podiatry business
  • Practice evolution - you've got to be prepared for change. 
  • The positives vibes of a family run business
  • Marketing 
  • Her chronic illness (Mass Cell Activation Syndrome)
  • The importance of your patients' overall health and wellbeing
  • Why podiatry is a lifestyle and not just a job
  • Listening to your patients 

"What you didn't like at Uni you may love in real life; you don't know until you try it". 

Final Tip

Do whatever makes your heart sing. If you find something you love and you're passionate about it, just go with it.
