Greetings from the Great White North...North Bay Ontario that is! When I am not sitting at my computer thinking about feet I enjoy spending time outdoors with my husband and two children doing anything active, whether it is skiing, hockey or curling in the winter, or swimming and playing basketball in our warm summer months.

I have been collaborating on contracts with the Foot Canada Training (formerly Foot Care Kingston) team since 2002, and have thoroughly enjoyed working in multiple capacities with these highly motivated and skilled entrepreneurs! Some of my latest contributions were:

I look forward to re-developing and administering the NEW Foot Care Nurse Educator course (FCNEd) in 2018, and helping the business to expand to new markets and locations across the nation with new and exciting materials, courses and events in the years to come!

Director of Operations

  Marie-Pierre Hamelin - Operations Management Consultant and Liaison   


As the Director of Operations I lend my skills to Foot Canada Training (formerly Foot Care Kingston) through website maintenance, student registration, client relations as well as assistance to the Director. My interest in foot care stems from my work in research on homelessness as well as time spent working in health care. These experiences have provided me with an appreciation for the impact that foot care services have on quality of life.

I hold a Master of Social Work from McGill University. My administrative and coordination skills have been garnered from my experience in program and contract management, research, hospital social work and international development.

I am a Francophone raised in rural Ontario and in the Yukon with a deep appreciation for the concepts of community and culture. Although my curious mind and wandering soul have led me to both live abroad and travel extensively, I currently call Nelson, BC home.
