208 - Becoming A Female Sports Podiatrist with Sarah O'Connell

Sarah O'Connell is the owner of Momentum Foot & Ankle Specialists in Oranmore, Galway, Ireland, and is a lecturer at the National University of Ireland with a focus on orthotic manufacturing.  Sarah was immediately on my radar after seeing her listed as a speaker at the most recent online OSGO Foot & Ankle Show. She talked about Utilising Orthotic Therapy in a Painful Pes Vavus Foot & Ankle.  In this episode, we discuss: Her journey into sports podiatry. Becoming a sports podiatrist was always her plan; however, she was advised against it.  Understanding biomechanics did not come easily and was initially very frustrating.  Having great mentors and having them challenge you.  Going out of your way to learning the skills you do not have.  The highs and lows of setting up her own business. The importance of having friends in and out of the profession.   "Be inspired by the people you associate with".  Final Tip Find something you're passionate about in podiatry and specialise in it, and find a mentor that can help carve the path.  You can connect with Sarah via email at [email protected] or on Instagram @momentum_footandankle.  Podiatry Advising & Mentoring Have you decided to grow your podiatry business in 2022?
