Jia Lin graduated from La Trobe University, Melbourne, in 2014 with a Bachelor in Health Sciences and Master of Podiatric Practice under a scholarship from then-Alexandra Health.
Before joining Physio and Sole Clinic, she was working at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital (KTPH) as a senior podiatrist and had been presented with the Service Champion Award for 5 consecutive years due to her dedication and going above and beyond for her patients. She was also elected to the Executive Committee of the Podiatry Association (Singapore) and served as treasurer from 2015-2016.
Jia Lin’s expertise lies in the management of complex wounds. In her tenure at KTPH, she was the leading podiatrist in wound management and was instrumental in setting up the first diabetic foot unit in Singapore. She specializes in managing all types of wounds including vascular ulcers, plastics reconstruction flaps, diabetic foot wounds and delicate skin graft wounds. She was the overall Podiatrist-in-charge for the Joint-Consultation Clinic, which involved a multidisciplinary care team including vascular, orthopaedic as well as plastic surgeons to provide holistic care for patients.
Jia Lin also has keen interest in children feet conditions as she was inspired during a dedicated rotation in an acute hospital paediatric department in Australia, which she has since gone on to gain extensive insights in biomechanical pathologies through clinical experience, updated clinical reading and attending musculoskeletal workshops. Nothing gives her greater pleasure than being able to aid in the recovery of her patients and seeing them walk out of the clinic with a smile.
