Registered Practical Nurse, Foot Care Nurse
Amanda Alexander is a highly experienced nurse, having graduated from the Humber College Nursing Program in 2000 and working in the field for 23 years. Prior to specializing in Foot Care, she worked as a community nurse for the Victorian Order of Nurses.
During the first Covid lockdown, while working as a woundcare nurse in Northumberland, Amanda noticed an increase in clients with foot ulcers, particularly among diabetic patients. Many of these wounds could have been prevented with proper foot care, but Amanda found that clients were having trouble finding a foot care nurse or that their regular nurse was unable to visit due to lockdowns.
Recognizing a shortage of foot care nurses, Amanda decided to help fill the gap by becoming a Foot Care Nurse. Her work differs from a spa pedicure in that she is trained to identify and correct problems such as corns, callouses, ingrown and involuted toenails, warts, and fungus. If structural issues are present, she will refer clients to her colleague, Beth. The ultimate goal is to ensure happy and healthy feet that are free from pain or discomfort.
At Body & Sole, all tools are sterilized using a multi-step process including ultrasonic cleaning and autoclaving, which uses pressure, high heat, and steam for sterilization.
When not working, Amanda enjoys spending time with her horse, Chilli, and her Alaskan Malamute, Ursa. She also has a passion for art and music and has marched in the Haliburton Highlanders Pipes and Drums as well as the Hastings and Prince Edward Regimental Pipeband.
Amanda is available at Body & Sole every Wednesday.
