Ashley Cooper

Ashley Cooper Graduating from La Trobe University in 2016 with a Masters in Podiatric Practice (B.Hs.M.PP), Ash's podiatry journey actually began in 2007 when he developed a love of biomechanics while working for an orthotic manufacturer. During his academia, Ash was often invited to attend lectures and classes for advanced year levels of anatomy and physiology, and was later requested by La Trobe to become a private tutor in the subject. Ash was given the opportunity to study at The Alfred Hospital where he honed his wound care knowledge and gained an in-depth understanding of post-operative recovery. Ash has now spent a number of years working over multiple facilities, including the podiatry suite at Epworth in Richmond, South Gippsland Hospital in Foster (senior podiatrist), and is the founder of Fancy Footwork Podiatry. Ash takes a genuine interest in all aspects of podiatry, from general treatment and nail surgery to diabetic foot health and wound care, and is especially drawn to sports injuries and foot pain management through footwear, strengthening, and orthotic therapy..
