Meet Podiatrist Melissa Zacharia!
Melissa Zacharia graduated with a Bachelor Degree of Podiatry from the University of South Australia. Through her time working, she has learnt many extra treatment skills. These treatments include foot and ankle joint mobilisation, dry needling, and exercise rehabilitation.
Melissa enjoys working with tricky foot pain cases. Lasting foot pain can start to feel like it’s sticking around for good – fear not! It’s important to know that this pain can still be managed. With this in mind, Melissa will provide education around you and your injury.
Melissa embraces an active role in the Podiatry Profession. Being an active association member, she loves to contribute to the growth of Podiatry across Australia. She has done this by creating an online facebook group for Podiatrists named “Rethinking Podiatry’ which is growing at a fast rate. She has also written articles for the Stride Podiatry Magazine, for Australian Podiatrists. Because of this, Melissa and Pod Fit Podiatry have a strong following around Australia!
Melissa holds accolades as a therapist and business owner. Melissa was the winner of the Australian Podiatrist Of The Year in 2019. She was also announced as the Finalist for the Emerging Leader in the Telstra Women’s Business Awards.
In her free time, you’ll often find Melissa going for a walk with her baby Annie and always finding the next best cup of coffee in Adelaide!
