A Longford lady is putting her best foot forward with the launch of her new business, Happy Feet Podiatry Clinic in Longford town.
Podiatrist, Siobhán O’Meara, is a Longford-native who always had an interest in healthcare. So when it came to deciding what to do after school, she had plenty of options on her CAO form.
“I put all the healthcare courses on my CAO and got offered a place in Podiatry. I really had no idea what I had gotten myself in for, but I quickly realised what a broad scope of practice it involved and how necessary a service in podiatry is,” she said.
Siobhan graduated from NUI Galway with an honours degree and is now a member of the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists, Ireland and the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists, UK.
“I have to say, it’s such a varied and fulfilling career and no two days are ever the same, so I’m happy with how it all turned out.”
And all of Siobhan’s hard work paid off on Friday March 10 when she was surrounded by family, friends and members of the public who gathered to support her at the official launch of her new business, ‘Happy Feet’.
Happy Feet Podiatry Clinic caters to people of all ages, offering treatment and advice for a wide variety of foot pain and discomfort.
Services include everything from routine podiatric care and footcare advice to gait analysis and diabetic foot screenings. Home visits are also available on request.
“It is great to have Happy Feet Podiatry Clinic up and running and I am really enjoying the experience so far,” said Siobhan.
“Offering a good quality service to my patients is so important to me and I hope that I am meeting patients’ needs and helping to keep them happy and healthy in the process.
“The launch night was a wonderful, memorable occasion and I was so blown away by all the well wishes and good will from all in attendance. I am blessed to be surrounded by such a supportive group of people,” she concluded.
And, at only a few months old, Siobhan’s business is already off to a great start, with various reviews on her Facebook page - ‘Happy Feet Podiatry Clinic’ - recommending her for a number of different services.
