Chose O&P Field Because

As the third generation of the family to own and operate Snell Prosthetics & Orthotics, Frank says that continuing to manage and grow the business was “in his blood”. He really never considered any other professional pathway.


“The reward of helping people with disabilities be able to retire to the most productive lifestyle possible is what drives me to perform. Even after five decades at Snell, I still love what I do.”

Fun Facts

While Frank cherishes all activities with his family, he and his wife particularly enjoy traveling overseas and taking trips across the country in their RV. They’ve been fortunate enough to have visited over thirty countries and more than half of the states. Additionally, Frank has always had a passion for community service. In his more than five decades at Snell, the company has been involved in numerous non-profit entities and received many philanthropic and service awards.
