Prosthetist Orthotist, PhD Candidate
University of Washington
I am a certified prosthetist orthotist and a doctoral candidate in rehabilitation science. My work in global rehabilitation has taken me to a number of different countries including Haiti, Ecuador, Laos PDR, Peru and Ghana. I have worked as a clinician, mentor, researcher and educator. I currently teach at the University of Washington in the Division of Prosthetics and Orthotics and conduct research on prostheses. I hope to work within global rehabilitation and improve access to rehabilitation services for people with disabilities worldwide by promoting scientific inquiry and implementation.
