Beth Martin
Certified Orthotist, ABC
After spending 8 years in the U.S. Air Force as an Intelligence analyst and 7 years managing an IT department for a Fortune 500 company in Chicago, I opted to quit my office job and make a career change that focuses on helping people make a difference in their lives. Over the last 10 years I have had the privilege of taking care of many patients; one of the hardest consequences about relocating to Virginia was leaving them. Though I was sad to leave Chicago, I’m very much excited about meeting new people and bringing the skills and experience I learned in Chicago here to Richmond.

  • Joined POWELL: 2015
  • Why I love working here: I want to work for a company that really cares about the patients and treat them like family. Powell is truly a dream come true for me with state of the art technology and great co-workers who work together as a team to ensure patients are well taken care of is an important facet for me.
  • Passionate about: I am very passionate about making a difference in people’s lives. Rarely do patients want to wear braces but with the right attitude and determination my job can help people get back to living a normal life. I’m a huge Pittsburgh Steelers and Penn State (my alma mater) Football fan. When I’m not at work I enjoy playing pool, BBQ’s and spending time with friends and family.

Joe L. Sullivan
Certified Prosthetist, ABC, Owner
My own experiences as an amputee lead me to POWELL. I became an amputee at six months old due to Cancer, where I met Tommy Powell, Jr. at Childrens Hospital’s clinic.  Tommy Powell was my first prosthetist and created many prosthetic devices for me as I grew.   I was given the opportunity to work for POWELL  in 1988 where I enjoyed the technical aspects of creating and building prosthetic devices.  I continued my education focusing on the clinical side becoming a Certified Prosthetist in 1998.  I leapt into focusing on pediatrics and families where I felt I could offer my lifetime  knowledge to other amputees in hopes to benefit  those  going through similar events  in their life.   I enjoy motivating others through my experiences, having competed in standing volleyball in two Paralympic games, many world competitions and more, taking the US team to their first gold in 1998 in the Canadian Championships. I am proudly an amputee with science, education and experience supporting me in all I do with my patients.

  • Joined POWELL: 1988
  • Why I love working here: I am a lifetime amputee. I wanted to work with other amputees going through what I experienced. I also like to work with my hands creating.
  • Passionate about: In Richmond I am the only amputee Certified Prosthetist offering mentoring to amputees using my life experiences coupled with over 20 years of experience in the prosthetics field.
  • Enjoy: working with disabled athletes helping them maximize their abilities, putting them on an equal playing field.

Scott Campbell
Certified Pedorthist, ABC
I entered the field of pedorthics working for my father in-law at his New Balance stores, and when they sent me for my training, I had found my calling. I have found my home at POWELL.  I’m able to utilize products ranging from Over The Counter (OTC) Orthotics, which I customize for my patient’s needs, (especially kids as they outgrow orthotics so fast), to Custom Shoes, Foot Orthotics, Ankle Braces, Super Malioma Orthoses (SMO), and certain Ankle Foot Orthoses (AFO).  No problem is too complex. I’ve been helping people since last century (1999), and each year, it’s more rewarding.
