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.
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.
