Originally from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Brette started her career as a Personal Support Worker before earning her Practical Nursing diploma with honours at Confederation College.

Due to an aging population and working closely with older adults with a wide variety of health conditions, Brette saw the need and importance for proper foot care and began her journey towards specialisation in July of 2016.

Today, she continues to work at the Atikokan General Hospital as a Registered Practical Nurse in the Acute Care Unit and Extended Care Unit, alongside providing specialised Basic, Advanced, and Diabetic Foot Care to the community and surrounding area.

I am proud to be a member of the Canadian Association for Foot Care Nurses

Meet Sandy Blatenszky,

Foot Care Nurse and Clinic Manager, Marathon

Sandy grew up in the Sudbury and Wawa area and has always wanted to take care of others from a very young age. She graduated the Registered Nursing Program in 2004 with honours and began her nursing career in Wawa. Later, she moved to Marathon and began working at the Manitouwadge General Hospital and Wilson Memorial Hospital.

Sandy believes in holistic care and advocating for her clients – she noticed the lack of medical care for feet, especially with the advanced aging population, in Marathon and decided to take matters into her own hands by receiving training in Foot Care.

She now leads our new Marathon location, beginning with our Mobile Unit, and is ready to help!

"I have always aspired to be the best I can be and make sure my clients feel like they matter and their voices are heard."

Healthy Feet, Happy Life

More than providing you with exceptional medical care, a foot care specialist is trained in proper sterilization procedures to ensure your health and safety.

To prevent health-care associated infections, Next Step Foot Care follows IPAC-Canada Guidelines for Sterilization. This means that you and your loved ones can feel assured that you are walking into a clean, safe environment with every appointment.

Good Hygiene

As well as washing thoroughly, we use face masks and gloves during the appointment to minimize the spread of germs.

Clean Tools

All of our tools and equipment are carefully sterilized or disposed of after each use, so you never have to share.

Best Practices

Communication is key. We work with you to ensure your safety and ours during such times as when there is a local outbreak of influenza.
