Tess is an ABC-certified prosthetist/orthotist for Hanger Clinic in Chicago, Illinois.
As a clinician, Tess sees patients of all ages, including pediatrics. She is skilled in the orthotic management of cranial remolding helmets, adult below-knee prostheses, hospital and outpatient orthotic and prosthetic care, complicated hospital-based orthotic cases, and incarcerated orthotic and prosthetic patients.
She finds orthotic and prosthetic care so rewarding because the field combines hands-on work and desk work with patient care. She feels fortunate to have found a career in which she can be creative on a daily basis while helping others. Tess enjoys helping patients reach their mobility goals and improve their quality of life.
Outside of work, Tess enjoys running and ceramics.
