Foot Function

Foot Function was founded over 30 years ago by its previous owner Sean Murray. All of our certified Pedorthists are members in good standing with the Pedorthic Association of Canada and the College of Pedorthics of Canada. We continue to be leaders in the design of custom foot orthotics and on-site manufacturing.

Cindie graduated from the University of Ottawa in 2016 with an Honours Bachelor degree in Health Sciences, as well as a degree in Social Sciences. Cindie then pursued her education to specialize in lower limb anatomy and biomechanics, gait analysis and custom foot orthotic manufacturing through the Pedorthics program at Western University.

When Cindie is not in the office, she loves to spend her time outdoors hiking and playing various sports. She currently likes to stay active with Triathlon training, Tennis and basketball. As an avid sports person herself, Cindie is always looking to improve her patients’ foot and joint health to get them back to the daily activities they enjoy.
