Kirsten Harvey BHSc.POD, M.Sport.PodNZ

A passion in everything sports related developed into an interest in health and well being and finally a career in podiatry. I completed my Bachelor of Health Science in Podiatry from the Auckland University of Technology (AUT) in 2008 when I then moved to Christchurch and started working in one of city's leading podiatry clinics. I have worked in and around Canterbury, forming close relationships with many multidisciplinary health professionals. I am passionate about my profession, enjoy working with people and look forward to providing you with the best podiatric care.

James Kennedy

A born and bred Cantabrian, James took a round about way to the world of podiatry. He initially studied Physical Education at the University of Otago, eventually completing his Masters in Biomechanics, before becoming a personal trainer travelling the world on cruise ships. It was during this time that James developed a huge passion for injuries to the lower limb and foot. James gave up life at sea to return to NZ to study podiatry to further this passion. James has a strong interest in all things podiatry, but his key areas of interest are all things biomechanics related and he looks forward to imparting his knowledge to help people take the best possible care of themselves. James can be found in his off time out running in the outdoors or playing hockey.
