Bee is a recent graduate of the University of Hartford Master of Science in Prosthetics and Orthotics program. She became interested in the field of prosthetics and orthotics because of her personal experience: years ago, she suffered an injury during a climbing accident that led to many surgeries in an attempt to save her leg, but she ultimately chose an elective below the knee amputation. Bee spent time shadowing her prosthetist and seeing him build lifelong relationships with his patients and change their lives convinced her to transition from nursing school and into the field of orthotics and prosthetics.
Bee hopes that her unique perspective combined with being surrounded by one of the best clinical teams at Hanger Clinic will allow her to provide the best possible patient care. She focuses on giving back to her community and she is incredibly grateful for that opportunity.
Outside of the clinic, Bee is an avid angler. Odds are she is in search of a high alpine lake at this moment, kissing fish. She also enjoys climbing rock and ice, mountain biking single track, and is ready to hit the trails running to bag that peak. Colorado is her home, but she longs for the desert.
