More about Elan
Elan was born in South Africa and moved to Australia when young. He is a firm supporter of all Australian sporting teams, particularly cricket, if you were wondering.
His schooling was unremarkable and if you ask him, quite forgettable.
University was more exciting. Elan has a BSc in Anatomy and Human Biology from UWA, and has many minor degrees to complement it. A second degree was received from Murdoch University in Chiropractic Science, but Elan never registered as a chiropractor.
His third and final degree was received from Charles Sturt University in Albury NSW. He completed the 4 year course in 3 years with Honours. While there, for fun he authored a multimedia biomechanics computer program for the students.
Elan has worked at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital and Fremantle Hospital, and then took up employment with the Department of Health, WA Country Health Service. Based in Narrogin, he worked at the hospital in Boddington, Pingelly, Narrogin, Wagin, Dumbleyung, Kondinin, Kulin and Katanning for about a year. He then was promoted to Senior Podiatrist (then Chief) at Kalgoorlie Regional Hospital and worked there for another year. Until recently, he traveled to the Goldfields, covering Kalgoorlie, Leonora, Laverton, Norseman, Esperance, Ravensthorpe and Hopetoun. And Carnarvon. It is likely that Elan covered the greatest area of any Podiatrist in Australia. In history.
Elan took over Eighth Avenue Podiatry in early 2008 and with the expansion of the business moved it around the corner onto busy Beaufort Street renaming it Silver Podiatry in the process.
In between academia and business, Elan married Sarah. While they do not have children, Elan feels under pressure by parents wanting to be grandparents. With two kidliwinks and one on the way, life is going to be delightfully hectic.
