Suzette is an ABC-certified mastectomy fitter and a licensed, certified orthotic assistant. She joined the Hanger Clinic team in 2004, after working as a Certified Nursing Assistant, an Occupational Therapy Orderly, and a Rehabilitation Specialist. She loves working directly with people of all ages and walks of life to improve their lives.
Suzette finds it rewarding that she gets to help people look and feel good, and she loves boosting the spirits of others. Sometimes that’s by providing mastectomy products to help breast cancer survivors feel like their natural selves, other times by helping patients walk with their new orthotic device. It’s also rewarding when patients come back after wearing a custom burn scar garment to show her how the scar has healed and the swelling is improved.
Suzette focuses on education, and helping her patients understand why a garment or device is necessary.
