For the past 15 years, Dr. LaMour has been proud to serve the Austin community. He grew up in the Midwest, where he graduated from Illinois State University and went on to obtain his D.P.M. from the William Scholl School of Podiatric Medicine in Chicago. After a two-year surgical residency at the renowned Houston Podiatric Foundation, he moved to Austin, where he has been a practicing podiatrist since.
Known as a caring and compassionate physician, Dr. LaMour builds relationships with his patients and their families. He enjoys being able to treat all types of foot problems, from sports injuries to diabetic complications, and restoring patients to the quality of life they deserve.
When he’s not at the office, Dr. LaMour loves to experience the Austin outdoors—often barbecuing, swimming, or water-skiing with his wife, Chris, and their two sons, Nick and Thomas. For the past decade, Dr. LaMour has coached his sons’ baseball teams, and is known around the community as “Coach Jeff.” He also is a proud supporter of the J. W. Rock Foundation which delivers Christmas dinner and presents to needy families with children.

April Shiery served in the United States Navy as a Hospital Corpsman, where she received training in many specialties, including podiatry, and was also awarded two Navy Achievement Medals. After her time in the military, she enrolled at the University of Texas, Austin where she majored in Biology and completed her Pre-Med classes. It was during this time that April met Dr. LaMour, and he asked her to come and run his practice.
April is very knowledgeable about wound care, and is especially passionate about helping diabetic patients heal wounds that threaten limb loss. She assists with all aspects of podiatry within the office, while ensuring smooth daily operations. April maintains high standards for care and customer service, and is proud to work with a staff who shares that philosophy.
A very proud mother of two young men, aged 20 and 14, April is also an avid Harley rider. Originally from Ohio, she has been living in Texas since 1996. As a football lover, April has completely transitioned into a diehard Longhorns and Texans fan. April is also a proud supporter of the J.W. Rock Foundation, who supports needy families with food and gifts during Christmas. If you’d like more information please read our blog Rock Christmas for Those in Need: The J.W. Rock Gift Delivery.
Dominga Juarez was considering a career in dentistry when she crossed paths with April Shiery and Dr. LaMour, who heralded the benefits of practicing podiatry. She agreed, and decided to pursue a career in feet and ankles—which is arguably about as far away from teeth as you can get! Three and a half years later, she’s still working with them and the rest of the staff. Dominga enjoys her co-workers immensely, as well as meeting new people and providing patients with the care they need for optimal health.
Outside the office, Dominga loves spending time with her husband and dogs, and watching movies or professional football at home. Before she joined Dr. LaMour’s office, Dominga worked in the food industry for many years, and she’s a true fan of Habitat for Humanity and Rainbow House Shelter in Corpus Christi. A native Texan, she has lived with her husband in Austin for 14 years.
When Nancy Watson retired after 35 years of teaching in the Austin Independent School District, she needed and wanted to work for a few more years. She started hunting through the want ads for something that would be a good fit. She found Dr. LaMour’s office, and has been working happily there for the past four years.
Nancy spent most of her teaching career in the primary grades, helping children who struggled with reading, math, and behavioral problems. During her decades as a teacher, she learned that patience, a friendly smile, and clear, well-spoken instructions can cut through a lot of the difficulties people face—at all ages—whether they’re learning new things or evaluating their options for patient care.
An active and talented singer her whole life, Nancy continues to participate in numerous choirs, and spends as much time with her grandchildren as she can. From working in her yard and keeping up with three grandsons to water aerobics “bouts” and cheering on the University of Texas, Nancy loves her full life in Austin.
Stacy Foreman had been a stay-at-home mom for a decade when she decided she wanted to get back into the work force part-time, but she had some requirements: she wanted to work in a low-stress environment where she was able to genuinely help people. She’d known Dr. LaMour for years as her son’s baseball coach, and thought he would be fun to work for and learn from. Turns out she was right.
Stacy has now been working for Dr. LaMour for three years. She’s delighted to be in a workplace where she gets to learn about the medical field while helping people, and the fact that she gets to do it with a staff that feels and functions like a family makes it even better.
An avid fan of her son’s baseball games, Stacy has admittedly never fully understood the game, but that doesn’t stop her from cheering him on in the stands. She has a lot of fun with her dog and goes camping whenever she can. A native Texan, she loves a good book, her family, and helping out regularly at the Texas Baptist Children’s Home.
