Lisa grew up watching her dad work out of his metal fabrication shop and eventually accompanied him out on jobs. She loved using tools and the idea that you could fix or build anything. In college, a television special about adaptive athletes got her interested in POP as a potential career. Working as a certified prosthetist and orthotic fitter perfectly pairs the design work she loved watching her dad do with the personal aspect of working hands-on with patients. After years of helping patients, Lisa couldn’t imagine being in any other profession. One of her favorite patient memories was seeing a young boy she had first fitted for a prosthesis at 13 months old take his first steps and eventually even play soccer. She believes that helping people get better and back to their lives makes her feel like the best version of herself.
