“Hello, my name is Miranda and I’m currently the DPM Assistant to Dr Krista Nelson at Next Step Foot and Ankle Centers. I have been working in the medical field since 2004. I joined this wonderful team of doctors in June 2017. I mostly work out of the Edwardsville and Alton locations and follow Dr Nelson from location to location. I love working personally with Dr Nelson due to our shared passion of genuinely helping people and families. She strives to help people not only improve their foot health but their overall health through educating them. She loves to keep the work environment relaxed, fun, and entertaining, which makes for an enjoyable work day. This company has a great group of employees that really shows teamwork, which makes for a great work atmosphere. Next Step Foot and Ankle is a great family-oriented company to work for.”
