My first introduction to Pedorthics was through the Durable Medical Equipment (DME) world. I started out in Sales and was also trained as a shoe fitter for diabetic shoes.

At that time there were only two individuals in the company that I worked for that were shoe fitters and certified in pedorthics. Within the first week I figured out there was more to fitting medical shoes than I could imagine. I knew I needed to educate myself to provide the service my clients deserved. These clients could not be fit with shoes that were off the shelf, they needed more for their disabled feet.

I reached out to one of the pedorthists on staff. She told me about the Pedorthic Footcare Association (PFA) and advised me to contact them for educational materials.

I contacted the Pedorthic Footcare Association and was advised to start out with two books; “Introduction to Pedorthics” and “Contemporary Pedorthics” so I made the investment.
