A determined, professional podiatrist, capable of adapting to any difficulty


The journey of Dre Audrey Lessard, podiatrist and founder of the Appalaches Podiatry Clinic, has been an unconventional one. Born without hearing, the podiatrist refused to let her handicap stand in her way. Ready to care for and collaborate with you, accompanied by an interpreter, she’s a model of resilience and determination.

Completing her studies in podiatric medicine at the University of Quebec at Trois-Rivières in 2009, Dre Lessard started her career on Montreal’s South Shore, before settling in the Thetford Mines region. Highly involved in her community, the podiatrist also regularly participates in international humanitarian projects, to offer podiatric care to those most in need.
