Lauren is a bubbly, energetic person who loves working with people and their families to achieve their goal of being pain free. She is an active, sporty individual and knows the frustration of injury and chronic pain first hand.
Lauren graduated from AUT with a Bachelor of Health Sciences, majoring in Podiatry. During her studies she was involved in a research project with well known Paediatric Podiatrist Angela Evans testing the assesment criteria for hypermobility in children. Lauren is currently completing postgraduate papers at AUT focussing on the MindBody aspect of health and wellbeing. She is aware of the benefits of addressing health holistically and aims to treat all her patients in this way.
Lauren has a strong belief that treatment is centred around patient education, self-management and future prevention. Lauren enjoys working with a team of health professionals to help an individual on their healing path. She has always worked in clinics alongside physiotherapists, massage therapists or doctors and is acutely aware of the importance of communication between all the services.
In her spare time Lauren enjoys swimming, surfing, yoga, running and is exploring meditation and its benefits.
Dani joined us at Hobsonville Podiatry to do her 4 week placement in the final year of her study, she has now joined us as a qualified Podiatrist and we are thrilled to have her as part of the team. She has a genuine, compassionate nature and is a wonderful problem solver. She enjoys interactions with patients and prides herself in providing top line care to help resolve the lower limb complaints that present to her. Dani relishes ongoing professional development and can often be found devouring the latest articles and keeping up to date with the newest theories and treatments.
Dani originated from Germany but has lived in Auckland for over 30 years. She has worked in the business sector, gained a Masters Degree in Professional Studies and worked on a Doctoral thesis in literature before coming to Podiatry later in life - bringing many years life experience to her practice.
Outside of Podiatry Dani loves to spend time with her husband, three grown children and her grandson. She plays tennis and golf and when she has extended periods of time off she makes the most of it and goes travelling!
