Philosophy: My experience has taught me that results are best when a collaborative effort exists between the entirety of a patient’s care team. For this reason, open and healthy communication has always been a focal point on my approach to patient care.
Bio: I was first introduced to the field of orthotics and prosthetics in high school due to multiple knee injuries. This experience sparked an interest to find a profession that allowed me to assist patients to achieve their milestones and goals. Being a CPO is incredibly rewarding as well as humbling, especially when I get to see the positive effects this field can have on a patient’s quality of life.
