I was once an elite athlete who competed at the Commonwealth and was named to an Olympic team. Following an injury a Pedorthist helped me get back on my feet. After chatting with him about the profession I was hooked. I knew pedorthics was the career for me.
Today, there is nothing I enjoy more than watching sports on TV and seeing one of the athletes I have helped accomplish their goals. One of my favourite memories is watching an elite high jumper set a Canadian record in Europe after I had modified his high jump spike. The icing on the cake was when I received a call from Nike shortly after the competition asking if they could duplicate the spike I had created.
