Jim

CPO


Jim’s interest in prosthetics and orthotics was sparked at a young age as he has worn a prosthesis his whole life due to a congenital limb deficiency. He has spent countless hours with a prosthetist problem-solving and fine-tuning his prosthesis so he can lead an active lifestyle and participate in activities he loves. His desire to apply his knowledge in a way that could help others needing a prosthesis or orthosis reach their full potential led to a career in P&O.

Jim earned a Master of Science in Prosthetics & Orthotics from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. He helped patient for three and a half years at a private practice outside the Texas Medical Center, developing skills serving a diverse patient population with patients at nationally recognized hospitals like MD Anderson Cancer Center and Houston Methodist Hospital. He is passionate about high-activity lower-limb prosthetic and orthotic solutions, but enjoys working with patients of all activity levels and builds strong relationships with them.

He enjoys staying active by hiking, camping, playing golf and spending time with his wife and dog Bailey. He recently ran the Houston Half Marathon and looks forward to running another half marathon in the future!
