Congratulations Lina Wood - Hear Them Roar

Congratulations Lina Wood, co-owner and Head Podiatrist at Active Foot Clinic (AFC), who has been selected to feature in the Women in Business HEAR THEM ROAR video series, celebrating high achieving local business women. 

Originally the series planned to profile 10 local, high achieving women in the Riverina, however due to the high standard of nominations, 14 women will now be profiled. The remaining ten women who have been selected to participate in the series will be notified and announced over the coming weeks.

After working in Victoria and London to broaden her clinical experience, Lina and her husband, Bill Wood, decided to move back to Wagga. Their intention was to open the most innovative podiatry clinic in regional Australia, believing that podiatrists in country areas can provide a service equal to and better than those in the city. 

Since establishing in 2005, Active Foot Clinic has built a modern, progressive, state of the art podiatry clinic and have taken their quality services to an additional 10 regional clinics. 

“It is important for you to know that this clinic has been created and continues to grow and evolve as a result of our incredible team who share the same vision of the “healthiest feet legs and lives for all”, says Lina. 

The Active Foot Clinic team have achieved their success with an absolute focus on quality care, providing the most effective solutions to their patients. Today Active Foot Clinic has provided relief to more than 20,000 people who have suffered with sore feet, ankles and knees, helping them to live an active, pain free and healthier life.

Lina and the Active Foot Clinic team have been rewarded for their success winning Best Small Business at Wagga Wagga Chamber of Commerce Crow Awards in 2014.

WaggaWagga.TV will produce Lina’s video story in coming months for cinematic release later in the year.
