Philosophy: Knowledge is power. If patients and families know how the body functions and how a brace interacts with the body, it helps improve compliance and allows the family to feel like they an important part of the care process. I also believe very firmly in providing the same level of care to my patients as I would to a family member.

Bio: I became an orthotist because I always wanted to work in the medical field with patients, but couldn’t manage the chemistry to become a doctor. When I was in school for Engineering I discovered the field of P&O and thought it sounded very interesting. I am very grateful for my engineering background because it allows me to easily analyze the body and plan a brace that is going to be as effective as I can possibly make it to provide the best outcomes for my patients.
