Celebrating 13 Years! May 9th, 2022Lotus Foot Care was an idea born of necessity. My own mom's toenails and fingernails had developed a fungal infection due to her medications. Not all fungal infections are due to visiting a nail salon or lockeroom. Sometimes a medication can make a body more suseptible to fungal infections. Mom's once beautiful nails were deteriorating ... Yellowed, cracked and spongy. No longer the beautiful nails she once had. I sought guidance from Podiatrists in SF.
How I became a foot care nurse- Jeanne Jennings. First, my family and I took Mom to a Podiatrist. It was so hard on her in her wheelchair, while using oxygen. The doctor cut the nails but did not file them smooth. We learned nothing could be done in her case as she needed to continue with her steroids for arthritis and breathing issues. So, we as a family took care of her foot care needs.
As an RN, I saw clients with unhealthy feet and toenails. I contacted Podiatrists in SF to learn more.
I contacted Podiatrist Jenny Sanders DPM in SF, studied with her and Podiatrist Eric Small DPM.
WISE, a non profit helped me develop a business plan. I listened and learned from NP's, MD's, pharmacists, MSW, serving seniors in San Francisco. I became a CFCS through The American Foot Care Nurse Association (afcna.org) in 2018.
