I am the second generation to lead Sampson’s, and I’m humbly proud of it. It has been my mission to elevate the company to offer only the most cutting-edge technology, including Coapt Complete Control Pattern Recognition, Targeted Muscle Reinnervation, and Vacuum Socket Technology, to name a few.
My specialties include working closely with Bill Sampson, CP, in all aspects of state-of-the-art prosthetics including microprocessor knees and feet, bionic ankle systems, advanced socket technology and more. I’m board-certified in prosthetics/orthotics and I completed by master’s degree at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Since 1999, I have been working as a board-certified prosthetist-orthotist at Sampson’s. After completing my bachelor’s degree, I received my graduate degree in prosthetics and orthotics at Northwestern University. I’ve completed trainings and internships across New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
Fitting and fabrication of devices and support systems for injured muscle/skeletal groups are my specialties. After receiving my bachelor’s degree in engineering science and mechanics, I served five years as a naval officer aboard a nuclear submarine. I later began my prosthetics and orthotics career, becoming board certified in 1997 and 1999.
My journey in the O&P field began in 2006 as a technician. After completing my bachelor’s degree, I received my Orthotics certificate from Northwestern and my Prosthetics certificate from the University of Hartford. I became board certified and licensed in 2009 and 2011.
As an above-knee amputee myself, I work with patients showing them that the limitations of being an amputee can be conquered. I have 25 years experience in the industry, first as a technician and then as a certified mastectomy fitter since 2003. I became a certified prosthetic assistant in 2011.
My career as a prosthetic technician at Sampson’s began in 1988. I became certified in 1993, and with the help and supervision of Bill Sampson, CP, I earned my ABC prosthetic assistant certification in 2012. I specialize in fabricating upper-extremity prosthetics: conventional, myoelectric and unique Coapt designs.
