Athena Jackson

Athena is a licensed registered nurse who’s background is in acute care bedside nursing. She has always been drawn to community health, advocates for the senior community and and loves to volunteer at her favorite free health care clinic for those in need. 

She was trained by a podiatrist and is board certified through the American Foot Care Nursing Association (AFCNA) and is a RN, CFCS-Certified Foot Care Specialist, as well as a LNT (Licensed Nail Technician). She loves learning beyond her degree, considers herself a ‘forever student’, and is eager to continue to build on her academic foundations in nursing and foot care.

Athena noticed over the years that so many patients and close family members needed foot care that was not always available to them. It seemed she never had enough time to provide desperately needed foot care at her work and for the people that she cared about. Foot health always seemed to take a back seat to other types of care. Frustrated, she decided the best way to help those in need was to open Ajax Advanced Foot Care to educate the public and provide quality foot care. She has made her business mobile for your convenience and comfort.

Nurses who achieve certification must understand and be able to demonstrate professional competency in the area of foot care nursing as required by the national standard of basic and advanced nursing foot care. 
A foot care nurse does not replace a medical doctor or podiatrist. We work collaboratively with these medical professionals and assist in pursuing an appropriate referral when needed.
