Amy learned about the POP field from her uncle who was a certified prosthetist/orthotist. He saw something in her and encouraged her to pursue a career in O&P. After shadowing him at a clinic and seeing him work with patients and create custom devices, she realized this was where she belonged. Amy has spent the past 24 years honing her craft as a practitioner. When a management opportunity opened up at her clinic, Amy stepped into the role. Although most of her time is spent managing business strategy and partnerships for the clinic, Amy is still a POP professional at heart and loves working with patients. Amy and her colleagues have built trusted relationships with patients who see how POP professionals not only create and fit their devices, but are advocates for them, whether it’s on insurance or other needs.
