Hi, I’m Belinda, the owner of Foot Steps Podiatry.  I am married and have three beautiful energetic children.

My sole job is to offer my patients professional podiatry care. I understand the importance of maintaining optimal foot health & being able to remain active & reducing lower limb pain. 

Foot, leg and back problems can not only be painful and uncomfortable, but they can lead to increased stress and the deterioration of your overall health.

Whether you have specific foot problems or if you just want to make sure that you’re doing everything you can in regards to your leg and foot health, Foot Steps can offer you expert knowledge, advice and modern industry standards.

Coming from a sporting background of Basketball and  representing my state & country, I know firsthand how important it is to remain injury & pain-free to optimise your ability to take advantage of everyday and the opportunities it presents, whether it be work, sport or leisure.

Being a mother of young children I also understand the need for children to be pain free and have good footwear for their foot development. 

At Foot Steps we offer a large range of treatment options from mobilisation, dry needling, paraffin treatments, fungal nail treatments, orthotics and general foot care so we can aim to help all patients that present to our practice. 

We also have a instore footwear store with a large range of ladies, mens and children’s footwear which helps in aiding our patients walk out the most comfortable, supportive & pain free that they can be whilst also looking stylish. 

If you are after advice, treatment or footwear feel free to pop down and myself or any of my staff will be willing to help you take a Foot Step in the right direction.

Hi, I’m Salo, a podiatrist at Foot Steps Podiatry. 

I love working with patients of all ages and aim to make their podiatry appointments as relaxed and enjoyable as possible. I will help you keep your feet in tip top condition.

I have since worked in private practice, public health high risk foot clinics, and rural indigenous health, as well as a Clinical Supervisor to podiatry students at Central Queensland University. I also regularly attend continuing education to keep up to date with the latest. 

Outside of work, I love to spend time with family and friends, cooking up a storm and making jewellery. I also enjoy traveling and discovering new places. Fun fact about me … you can ask me about your feet and your teeth, as I am also a qualified Oral Health Therapist!

Martin Giollo

Podiatrist

Hi, I’m Martin, a podiatrist at Foot Steps Podiatry. 

I am happy to be part of Foot Steps Podiatry Griffith to help anyone with lower limb complaints. I studied a Bachelor of Podiatry at La Trobe University, and graduated in 2009. My scope of practice is varied including general foot, skin, and nail care, diabetes education, podiatry for sports enthusiasts, footwear prescription and advice. I have worked in many rural settings to urban practice. I have an interest in diabetes and completed a post-graduate in diabetes education.

I have also taken courses in dry needling & adjunctive physical therapy treatments such as foot mobilisation techniques which has significant potential to reduce pain and restore pain-free movement. 

Podiatry isn’t just for the elderly. It can help people of all ages. I am available for any patients under chronic disease care plans, DVA and private consultations. I look forward to providing you with holistic health care. Outside podiatry, I’m very interested in the Italian culture and cuisines Griffith has to offer.
