About Us

Susan Ackerley Bsc (Hons) M.A.Pod.A

I am the proprietor of Rightstep Podiatry. I qualified with an Honors degree as a Podiatrist in 2005, after 4 years of study at Salford University in England. During my years of training, I was able to work within the local National Health System hospitals to gain experience with high risk foot conditions. I particularly enjoyed training with the diabetic foot patients at the Manchester Foot Hospital.
Since graduating, I have run my own podiatry business both in the United Kingdom and in Canning Vale. Rightstep podiatry was set up in 2009 and has since taken on another podiatrist Joshua McKernan to help with extended hours.

During our work we undertake regular professional development courses, as an example of previous courses and treatment, I now include at the practice:

  • Acupuncture
  • Manipulation & Mobilisation
  • Kinesiology Strapping
  • Diabetic reviews and Neurovascular assessments

I am also proficient in providing Biomechanical assessments, orthotics and nail surgeries. During the last few years I have also had the pleasure of working with Mark Ould at Malibu Podiatry, where
we can see up to 200 patients a week ranging from Diabetics to Navy personnel. I look forward to helping you and your family to see, feel and enjoy the benefits of Podiatry care.

Joshua McKernan B.Pod.M

I qualified from the University of Western Australia in 2011 after completing 4 years of study. During my years of training I was fortunate enough to attend a wide variety of practical clinical placements. These included dealing with high risk foot conditions at hospitals such as Royal Perth and Sir Charles Gairdner hospital, and also undertaking general foot care and dealing with sports injuries at a number of private practices around Perth. I took particular interest in dealing with foot problems that arose from skiing and snowboarding. Over consecutive ski seasons I spent a total of 6 months working in Japan.

Since graduating I currently work for 3 different practices around Perth. North of the river for Prime Podiatry, and in the far south of Rockingham I have the pleasure of working with Mark Ould at Malibu Podiatry.

Rightstep was my first place of employment and I have enjoyed working with our patients for the last couple of years.

The scope of my practice includes:

  • Biomechanical assessments and orthotic prescriptions
  • General Foot care
  • Nail Surgery
  • Diabetic reviews and Neurovascular assessments

I look forward to helping you and your family to see, feel and enjoy the benefits of Podiatric care.
