If you’ve found yourself connecting with the vision, the passion and the fantastic culture behind South Burnett Podiatry - then you will have glimpsed an insight into Katharine’s goals, her drive - and her heart. Committed to delivering exceptional care that goes above and beyond to her South Burnett community, Katharine is proud to be enabling her patients to stay active and mobile, do the things they love, and dream big.
When it comes to her own big dreams, South Burnett Podiatry is one of her biggest, and she describes her 2018 purchase of the practice “a dream come true”. To Katharine, each new patient is as important as the last, and she has ensured that the clinic has a solid foundation of respect, integrity, trust and genuine care.
Katharine loves working with a variety of different patients - from complex heel pain patients, to those needing skin & nail care or diabetes assessments, helping to keep each group safe, feeling their best, and ensuring they have the right information about their health.
Aside from her Podiatry education, Katharine also holds degrees in Health Studies and Business, has been an active Rotary member for a significant portion of her life, has completed the RYLA leadership programme - and enjoys using her skills and time to give back to people and her community - as well as set the bar for Podiatry in Kingaroy.
With an extensive background in sports podiatry across Queensland, Donna is proud to now be using her expertise in helping patients with their foot and leg problems here in South Burnett, which she has proudly called home for the past four years. Donna believes that everyone, at every age, deserves the chance to walk without pain and enjoy a healthy quality of life - and we couldn’t agree more!
When it comes to patient care, Donna is always looking to expand her wealth of knowledge and skill. Her current topics of interest are diabetes care and pediatric biomechanics. According to Donna, it’s often very simple changes to people's habits and movement that can make a very large difference to their pain levels - and their ability to achieve their health and lifestyle goals.
When Donna isn’t performing biomechanical assessments or excelling in her orthotic prescription, she is spending time with her husband and two daughters in the community that she adores.
Quynh Trang Trinh
Trang (as she is known by her patients and colleagues) is a passionate and driven Podiatrist that loves helping keep her patients mobile and active and applying a holistic approach to healthcare. She believes that besides treating foot and ankle conditions, Podiatrists play an important role in health education and health promotion, encouraging patients to make healthy lifestyle changes so they stay healthy and happy.
Trang enjoys learning about and performing manual therapies as part of her treatment, and has been attending acupuncture, dry needling and mobilisation workshops to add even more value and treatment options for her patients.
Trang has given back to her community in numerous ways, including participating in the Brisbane Homeless Connect and Indigenous Health Check Day, and volunteering at the Sunshine Coast Marathon. Outside of work, she’s a table tennis enthusiast and avid guitar player.

Janelle is a real ‘people person’ and thrives in the friendly and caring atmosphere of our clinic. She has a special interest in the shoe sales aspect of the clinic, being a massive shoe-lover herself! She understands the challenges that people face with finding footwear when they’re having pains and problems with their feet, and always takes the time to listen to their needs and find them a perfect solution that is supportive, comfortable, and promotes their foot health.
Melissa is our fantastic and friendly receptionist. She enjoys meeting the variety of patients here at South Burnett Podiatry, and helping them find the best footwear to suit their needs.

Melissa loves the professional and friendly environment, the challenging issues of podiatry, and the ability to help others. She is proud to work for Katharine Butcher and alongside our podiatrists, Trang and Donna, knowing they put our patients first and work diligently to keep our patients’ feet healthy and happy.
