Josée is the owner and Director of Care of both Happy Feet Medical Foot Care Inc and Happy Feet Workshops and Supplies. Early in her nursing career, Josée recognized that her passion was in the field of preventative care where improved quality of life was at the forefront of her nursing philosophy. Josée’s desire to grow this philosophy sent her on a journey to pursue independent nursing by studying Advanced Foot Care. Choosing this focus has aided her in realizing her vision of improving the quality of life of her clients and her community. She has since grown her practice to include 2 clinics, 11 facilities, home care nursing treatments and 7 wonderful team members.
Josee’s passion for teaching comes from the generosity of those who have helped her along in her career. She believes in the “Pay it Forward” philosophy and has an open book approach. With this in mind she opened, along with a partner, Happy Feet Workshops and Supplies. Here Josée is able to provide hands-on workshops for nurses to enhance and practice new skills. Believing the best way to educate is through experience, Josée opens up her clinic to those who wish to learn from a working practice and expand their knowledge through practical implementation.
Josee is grateful for the opportunity to serve her community and is looking forward to meeting the continuing needs of her clients.

Mickaela joined the Happy Feet team early in 2021. She has enjoyed a career working as a nurse on the Maternity and Rehabilitation ward at the Cornwall Community Hospital.
