Chose O&P Field Because

Kimberly claims she first became interested in prosthetics after a high school friend lost his hallux (big toe) in a lawn mower accident. Somehow that incident led her to a career in the prosthetics and orthotics field. After working for twelve years as an assistant and technician, she became a licensed practitioner and now has over two decades of experience.

Comment

“Watching a lower extremity amputee receive their first prostheses and seeing the worries disappear from their face as they start to walk again is probably what I like most about my job. Or when I get to race a child who I just fit with superhero braces and I see the excitement on their face when they win because they realize that their braces make them faster than before.”

Fun Facts

While she might not be putting out a record anytime soon, Kimberly thinks that music can make everything better. She believes that there is a song for everything someone is going through. She also predicts that you may see her driving around with a car full of kiddos rocking out with our hairbrush microphones. Spending time with her family is what she enjoys most.
