Natalie is an ABC-certified orthotist and board eligible prosthetist for Hanger Clinic in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
Natalie originally became interested in the field of orthotics and prosthetics after her grandmother was diagnosed with ALS later on in life and required ankle-foot orthotics to continue walking. She is specifically interested in lower limb orthotics as well as pediatrics. She also has special interest in documentation and would like to participate in more research in the future.
Natalie has a background in athletic training and kinesiology. Prior to obtaining her masters in orthotics and prosthetics, Natalie was a certified fitter of orthotics at an orthopedic physician’s office for five years. She completed her orthotic residency at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in Hartford and her prosthetic residency at Hanger Clinic in Pittsburgh.
Outside of work, Natalie enjoys going to Pittsburgh to visit with her family, cuddling with her 17 year old cat Clover, and shopping.
