Diane is an ABC-certified orthotist for Hanger Clinic in Ithaca, New York.
As a clinician with more than 25 years of experience in the field, Diane works with patients of a wide variety of ages and especially enjoys pediatric orthotic management.
Having a mother who is a registered nurse and father who is a mechanical engineer makes the orthotic profession a perfect fit for Diane. She enjoys problem solving and hands-on patient care. She likes to collaborate with other medical professionals, colleagues, and patients and their families to find the best orthotic treatment. She finds cranial remolding orthoses (CROs) are very rewarding because visible, positive change can happen so quickly — and families are excited by that! She also finds joy in helping patients improve their mobility and reach their goals.
