“Since I’ve been in O,P&P the changes I’ve seen in the profession have been nothing short of transformational. From technological advancements, patient care improvements and paradigm shifts in medical communities across the country, the orthotics and prosthetics profession has achieved breakthrough exposure around the world. As ABC President, I am looking forward to continuing to grow the awareness of OP&P as an essential and meaningful profession and maintaining the mission and values that have made ABC the gold standard in professional certification and accreditation.”
