She is passionate about education and committed to using this as a tool to support informed, effective, and consistent practices for nursing foot care in Canada.

Aside from being accused of being "obsessed with feet" for the last 25+ years by some of her friends and family, there are 4 important aspects of her life that give her a constant stream of joy: family, community, nature and health & wellness.
Cindy is looking forward to welcoming a new cohort of students to Foot Canada Training's Foot Care Nurse course this semester!
