Meet the Social Network Team: Shannon, Greg, Zara and Elizabeth

Shannon Carmignani

Promotions Director

Hobbies: I enjoy hiking, kayaking, fishing, biking and camping. I also paint (oils on canvas) and love a good book.

Why Podiatry? I shadowed an MD, a DO and a DPM as an undergraduate and found that the podiatry office had the most variety in their day to day work life. From warts to complex surgeries, podiatry is an exciting vocation!

Greg Ritchey

Media Director

Hobbies: I enjoy playing music (bass and drums) as well as listening to music. I also like to spend time with my girlfriend and nieces.

Why Podiatry? Podiatry was right for me because I have a drive for surgery. Medicine is a dynamic field and Podiatry definitely has a little bit of everything. It’s a tightknit specialty which makes it even more special and unique.

Zehra Kazmi

Scholarship Director

Hobbies: Traveling, hiking, swimming, watching thriller movies, and yoga.

Why Podiatry? I chose Podiatry because it is a specialized field yet encompasses a wide variety of medical disciplines from surgery to primary care, and offers a balanced lifestyle.

Elizabeth Ansert

Projects Manager

Hobbies: Forensic work, medical missions and charities, running, cooking, and my cats are the coolest pets around

Why Podiatry? Podiatrists work with many different biological systems. Each patient is different and can involve a multitude of factors. It keeps you on your toes (literally) and allows for hands on application of both our medical knowledge and clinical skills.
