She then studied Podiatry Medicine at the University of Salford and qualified with a First-class Honours degree.

Annia has experience in NHS trust clinics in the North West Region which includes podiatry services such as:
She has a particular interest in the musculoskeletal component of the lower limb and has spent the last few years focusing on musculoskeletal injuries during sports, particularly cycling.
Annia has been a keen cyclist for over 5 years and has participated in a range of fundraising events in support of the Macmillan Cancer Research group.
Cycling inspired her dissertation topic in her last year of study, connecting her understanding of the musculoskeletal aspect of the foot to that of the biomechanics behind cycling.
Before embarking on a career in podiatry, Annia spent 15 years running her own business working as a foot and nail care specialist including 5 years as the owner of her own nail salon.
