Cindy Lazenby, founding President of Foot Canada Training, lead author of Art and Science of Foot Care: A Clinical Resource for Nurses in Canada and lead developer of Foot Canada Training’s curriculum, has an extensive history of providing nursing foot care education and advocating for improvements in nursing foot care in Canada and health care entrepreneurship.
In addition to being a Registered Nurse since 1981, a Foot Care Nurse provider and Educator since 1993, she is currently Foot Canada Training’s Director of Nursing. Since 1993, Cindy and her associates have trained over 4500 Foot Care Nurses and over 2 dozen Educators across the country. In 2016, Cindy’s passion to transfer her knowledge to other nurses and educators, was the driving force for opening access to Foot Canada Training’s standardized and peer-reviewed curriculum to Foot Care Nurse Educators, health agencies, community colleges, universities in Canada.
In 2010, Cindy was a founding contributor and the first Chair of the CAFCN (Canadian Association of Foot Care Nurses), which aims to standardize best clinical and educational practices across the nation, and has held numerous other volunteer committee positions since, including her current roles as Provincial Advisor for BC and on the Nominating Committee.
Aside from being accused of being “obsessed with feet” since 1991 by some of her friends and family, there are 4 important aspects of her life that give her a constant stream of joy: family, community, nature and health & wellness.
