More on foot care and the team:
Abbe Findley is a clinical herbalist and CNT (Certified Nail Technician) soon to be Medical Nail Technician who has been doing foot care for the last 2.5 years in the Skid Row community. She first fell into foot care when a friend and mentor, Lorna Mauney-Brodek took her to the LA Catholic Worker Foot Care Friday. Since then she has been regularly involved in volunteering these foot care services for the homeless. Her studies include a three-month apprenticeship with the Herbalista Health Network where she volunteered weekly at the Harriet Tubman Free Foot Clinic in Atlanta, GA. In addition, ongoing mentorship under Certified Foot Care Nurse Laura Roehrick of Santa Rosa, CA for last few years.
Josie Mattson has been a registered nurse and public health nurse for ten years. Since 2015 she has worked as a community outreach nurse, first as a member of C3, the interdisciplinary outreach team in Skid Row, and currently as the RN of the Star Clinic, a primary care facility serving those experiencing homelessness and in supportive housing. In the clinic, Josie specializes in wound and foot care, and case management for vulnerable patients moving into housing.
