our beginnings... 


Armidale Podiatry opened its doors in 2018 when podiatrist Trina Goard moved back to her hometown in regional NSW. It has been Trina's passion to bring innovative and quality podiatry treatment to the local community that has been the driving force behind Armidale Podiatry's growth.


We've found our feet in Armidale (excuse the lame podiatry joke!). Our small, yet powerhouse team, are dedicated to providing the best possible treatment with a patient-centred approach, whilst also being able to have a good time, and make a positive difference in your foot health.  

our approach to podiatry treatment 


At Armidale Podiatry we treat the whole family - from young children to the elderly. Our goal is to keep you on your feet living a healthy active life … whether that be walking, running or being able to doing the things you love pain-free.

Trina Goard

Bachelor of Podiatry (QUT)

Hi! I'm Trina. I grew up in Armidale. I graduated as a podiatrist from Queensland University of Technology. After working in a busy podiatry clinic in Brisbane I moved back to my hometown. The best part about my job is being able to alleviate people's foot pain so that they can go about their day happily.


I love travelling and a good coffee!

Cathy Layton

Hello! I'm Cathy. I joined the team in 2020 as a receptionist (I keep the clinic organised!). I also measure and fit our Dr Comfort medical-grade footwear range. It's my voice you will hear on the phone and I am always happy to answer any questions you might have. 

I moved to Armidale 20 years ago (does that make me a local yet?). On weekends I can be found knitting or watching a good documentary. 


Hannah Wittwer

Bachelor of Podiatry (UniSA)

Hello! I'm Hannah. I moved from Adelaide to join the Armidale Podiatry team full-time in 2021. I graduated as a podiatrist from the University of South Australia. The best part about my job is helping people achieve goals they’ve set for themselves without being limited by foot pain.


I am a self-confessed foodie and you might also spot me jogging with my dog ‘Angel’.

Greg Bennett

Hey! I'm Greg. I joined the team in 2021 as a receptionist. I have come from a background in real estate. It's my voice you may hear on the phone and I am always happy to answer any questions you might have. I also seem to have become Armidale Podiatry's resident tech guru!

I am keen on several different sports, but especially AFL, NRL and NFL. So you might hear me discussing the weekends game with patients after their podiatry appointment.
