Our Chiropodist & Foot Specialists

Kelly Zeglen,
Chiropodist

My journey to becoming a Chiropodist began with obtaining my Bachelor of Kinesiology at The University of Toronto. Shortly after graduating I happened to get a job working as a Chiropody Assistant in Mississauga and immediately knew it was the field for me. I loved the one-on-one care aspect of it and being able to provide immediate pain relief for patients. I completed the Advanced Diploma of Chiropody program at The Michener Institute in Toronto where I gained valuable experience working at the school’s chiropody clinic and also in hospital and private practice settings. I then made the move to Barrie when I joined the Footprint team and couldn’t be happier!

I am dedicated to providing holistic care for my patients and have experience treating a wide range of conditions including ingrown toenails, warts, plantar fasciitis, wound care, and much more! My main goal is to develop a treatment plan that works best for you to get you back on your feet.

Fun fact: I have an unhealthy obsession with The Office and could probably quote the show word-for-word
