MSPO, Orthotics Resident
I am a recent graduate of the prosthetics and orthotics masters program at the University of Pittsburgh. Before I moved to Richmond to join the Powell team, I enjoyed a fantastic clinical externship experience working with our wounded warriors at Walter Reed NMMC, as well as completing a surgical shadowing internship at UPMC Shadyside Hospital where I had the immense privilege of witnessing osteopathic reconstruction and osseointegration surgeries with Dr. Richard McGough. I strive to contribute to the promotion of our field through practitioner-led research and my work has recently been presented at the 2019 PA-AAOP Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and DC Regional Chapter Meeting as well as at the national 2019 AAOP Annual Academy Meeting and Scientific Symposium. My research -which involves social media content analysis- was the first study of its kind in the field of O&P. I have enjoyed these opportunities to represent Powell in the larger O&P community, and I look forward to continuing to make a positive impact on the lives of our patients here in RVA.
