Julie Thayilchira B.Sc., D.Ch.

Julie is a Registered Chiropodist/Foot Specialist that is licensed under the Chiropody Act 1991 and a member of the College of the Chiropodist of Ontario with good standing. She received her undergraduate degree in Biomedical Science at the University of Waterloo. Her family experiences with diabetes and foot-related disorders further motivated her to seek an Advanced Diploma of Health Sciences in Chiropody. 

During her first year of school, Julie gained a position as a receptionist at a chiropody clinic in Mississauga, Ontario, where she worked for 2 years. Learning how to speak to patients and help guide them in the right direction then further advanced her to the Chiropodist she is today. 

Julie joined the Orillia community in October of 2020 but first experienced it in 2019 at the Rama Annual Health Fair. As a student, Julie wanted to learn about the available outreach programs for high-risk populations living on the reserve. She had met many members of the Chippewas of Rama First Nation with a desire to learn more about the community and to further educate individuals about foot disorders related to Diabetes. 

Julie is dedicated to providing honest care for her patients which includes educating patients about their conditions and providing the best management plan moving forward. 

Julie is accepting new clients at this time. 

In her spare time, you can find Julie playing video games with her fiancée and hanging out with her cat Peach. Before the pandemic, Julie was a youth Boxing coach in Brampton, Ontario, and enjoys being creative!
