Philosophy: Patient first. Taking the time to understand the patient's/parent's goals, setting realistic expectations and working together to achieve the best possible outcome.
Bio: My grandmother wore a metal ankle foot orthosis (AFO) after having a stroke. I remember taking it apart and putting it together again much to the chagrin of the treating orthotist. Years later, while visiting my sister, a physical therapist at a rehabilitation hospital, I found myself spending all of my time in the orthotic/prosthetic facility instead of the therapy gym. I applied to school the following semester and the journey began. My passion was found after joining Boston O&P in 1993 - pediatric orthotics and prosthetics.
I enjoy spending time at the beach and skiing with my wife and our two children.
