Prosthetics is a very small field. Even if you do not know somebody personally somebody you know has a connection with that person.
The most asked question I have heard over the years is "how did you get into prosthetics?"
Some people have really simple answers like mine, "because I wear one", and others have different ties into the field.
I met Becky Curls at Camp No Limits Florida 2010. She was coming to volunteer and had shadowed a few different times and decided she liked the field. She came and spent a couple of days with us at prosthetic and orthotic associates and ended up doing a 10 week internship with us.
Here is a short video on her. She has been really impressive in these past 10 weeks and no doubt she will be an important addition to the field. She might even be one of our residents going into the future.
