Kirby Read - ATUNE Health Centres - Podiatrist
As a Lake Macquarie local, Kirby completed a Bachelor of Podiatry at the University of Newcastle in 2012. She has been working in private practice ever since and is passionate about all thing’s feet!
Kirby always wanted to have a career in allied health. She loves how podiatry is so diverse encompassing paediatrics, geriatrics, elite sportspeople and all those in between.
During Kirby’s study, she worked as a podiatry assistant focusing on orthotic manufacture and modification. She has continued to enjoy this aspect of podiatric practise ever since. She also has a keen interest in diabetes management and performing general treatments, focusing on nail and skin pathologies.
Kirby has experience in disability care and continues to focus on helping people of all abilities. She is a registered NDIS provider and finds this aspect of podiatry incredibly enjoyable and rewarding.
Kirby has always lived an active lifestyle, swimming competitively at a national level all throughout her schooling years. She remains committed to health and wellness, running and heading to the gym for exercise.
When not at work, you will find Kirby spending time with her husband, 2 children and her French Bulldog. She loves the sea, sand, and spending time away in her camper “glamping”.
