Over 16 years experience in all aspects of footcare, working previously as a Diabetic Podiatrist at St James Hospital, South Dublin, screening, educating and treating Diabetics on the importance of good footcare.
This experience underpinned her interest in Podiatric Biomechanics as she recognized that regardless of the underlying medical condition good foot posture is essential to prevent mechanical pain, injury or ulceration due to adverse foot pressure and friction. Her Masters level training and expertise in lower limb biomechanics and musculoskeletal injuries provides the standard of Podiatric management at her clinic. As a podiatrist, her philosophy to clinical practice and multidisciplinary management of patients was fostered while working alongside the Physiotherapists at Dublin Physiotherapy clinic. Currently Mary receives ongoing referrals from Consultant Orthopaedic surgeons, Rheumatologists, Chartered physiotherapists, Osteopaths and GPs.
Mary believes in keeping up to date with all aspects of Podiatry from wound care to the management of Sports Injury Management. She actively seeks opportunities to increase her knowledge base and scope of practice. She has successfully completed post graduate training with podiatrist Ted Jedynak in Foot mobilization therapy and Podiatric Acupuncture and dry needling with podiatrist Shane Toohey. These skills have made a dramtic difference to the managment of Plantar fasciitis, Foot arthritis, Mortons Neuroma, Painful bunions, Shin splints, weak ankles and tendoniits.
Continual professional development is achieved by regular attendance at conferences and completion of postgraduate courses both nationally and at international level. Her Master’s Thesis investigated the changes in walking patterns that occur when different types of orthotic heel lifts are inserted into shoes and to see if orthotic materials influence the timing and rate of walking patterns.
Mary has been involved with Special Olympics since the World Summer Games held in Ireland 2003. At these games she set up and was the Clinical director of the Fit Feet program which screened the athletes skin, nail, foot posture and gait.

Since then she has worked closely with this program and held the position of the European Fit Feet clinical podiatrist. She trained other Podiatrists across Europe and volunteered at Games in Luxembourg, Rome and Japan. She was the clinical director for Fit Feet at the National 2010 and 2014 Special Olympic games and looks forward to continuing her relationship with such an enjoyable and worthy organization. 
In 2004 she presented the research findings from the Fit Feet program at the annual conference of the American Podiatric Medical association and Federation of International Podiatrists world conference. She was awarded a plaque from the American academy of Podiatric sports medicine for her outstanding contribution to Podiatric sports medicine and work with Special Olympics.
