Samantha’s advice for her foot care clients?
For overall foot health, inspect your feet daily. Watch for any significant changes in your feet including: calluses, corns, sores or wounds you may have incurred from having stepped on something. Those with diabetes are often at greater risk, so a daily foot inspection will be critical.
As well, moisturize daily, and don’t underestimate the importance of wearing proper fitting shoes. For healthy aging, be proactive by staying active. Whether a short walk or activity from a chair, keep moving the best way that you can.
In her personal time Samantha enjoys spending time with her husband and 3 year old daughter going for walks, and exploring nature. Her guilty pleasure – cookies!
