The technology and advancements in Prosthetics & Orthotics is why I became interested in the field. The personal connection with my patients is why I stay in. I have a degree in Prosthetics Orthotics from the University of Washington. I also have degrees in Biology and Psychology from Indiana University Bloomington. My clinical expertise lies in Microprocessor designed prosthetics, myoelectric prosthetics, and comprehensive scoliosis treatment.
As the son of a wood and metal shop teacher I learned to work with my hands. I graduated from Pacific Lutheran University with a degree in Psychology and then went on to earn my degree in Prosthetics and Orthotics from the University of Washington. My expertise is primarily in lower limb prosthetics. I always cherish the moment when my patient takes their first steps following their amputation.
I graduated from the University of Washington with a B.S. in Prosthetics and Orthotics in 2006. I joined CPO after residency at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. My clinical specialties include orthotic management of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, pediatric orthotic care, clubfoot treatment, above and below knee prostheses. The techniques and products of the field are continuously improving, which is why I strive to stay up-to-date with new technologies and research to provide my patients with the best possible care.
I was Pre-Medical when I started at the UW. As I learned more about the Prosthetics and Orthotics program I decided it would be a good fit for my skills, interests, and personality so I switched majors and graduated form the University of Washington in 2007. My specialties include lower extremity prosthetics, pediatric orthotics, and dynamic lower extremity ortheses. In the ten years of my professional practice I’ve come to appreciate the perfect balance of artistry and engineering that is prosthetics and orthotics.
In 2003 I was ready to make a change in careers. I was drawn to P&O because of the opportunity to make an impact on peoples lives by restoring their mobility, confidence and activity levels. I graduated from the University of Washington with my B.S. in Prosthetics and Orthotics. I joined CPO after a residency at the VA in Seattle. My clinical experience is in upper and lower limb prosthetics and upper and lower limb orthotics. The technological advancements in this industry are great, but the greatest patient asset is the amazing adaptability of humans.
I’ve always been an artistic person and when I first learned about the field I was interested to learn more. As I learned more I enrolled in the University of Washington and graduated with a B.S. in Prosthetics and Orthotics. After interning at the VA in Seattle, I joined CPO because of their reputation for excellence. I enjoy the creativity and artistry involved in helping others return to independent living.
I was a pre-pharmacy student at USC when I became interested in P&O. I was drawn to the field because I could be more hands-on in serving my community. I graduated from University of Washington with a master's in P&O and completed my residency at CPO under a great team of clinicians and technicians. As an orthotist prosthetist, I appreciate the opportunity to forge a lasting and personal relationship with patients. I feel very fortunate to have found this field.
I chose Orthotics and Prosthetics because I wanted to be of service to others where I could hopefully improve their quality of life in some way, meet inspiring interesting people and create, design, problem solve and work with my hands. I enjoy connecting with the patients and coming up with solutions together that will best serve their needs. Each person and situation is unique and that is what keeps my job interesting and challenging.
