Who we Are

Tannis Sorge and Sandra Tetrault are Registered Nurses with 20 + years of varied nursing experience within the hospital community before taking their foot care nursing course. After several years of nursing foot care experience, they noted a lack of available continued education. This lead them to completing a 200 hour Foot Care Nurse Educator Course in 2013 .Their passion for practice standards has resulted in thriving foot care businesses in the lower mainland, positions with the local foot care interest group and foot care nurse advisors for various committees and boards .The PEDEd team participates in speaking venues related to foot care including education events for Diabetes Canada.

In 2014 the pair completed two American foot care nursing courses, passed the certification exam and became Certified Foot Care Nurses in the U.S. (certified by the W.O.C.N.C.B.).

The PEDEd team arrived back from Houston ,Texas in March 2017 where they attended the International Diabetic Foot Conference inspired by physicians from around the world all striving to prevent amputations. The next stop is Kamloops to attend the four day National Wound Care Education Workshop and Conference and then off to New Brunswick(May 2017) for the CAFCN (Canadian Association of Foot Care Nurses) conference. Presently, Tannis and Sandra are instructors at two colleges, Vancouver and Victoria B.C. Additionally, they codeveloped an extensive online foot care course. The team is passionate about providing the most up-to-date theory and leading edge comprehensive clinical for their foot care students.
