How did you join the O&P industry?
My story is unique; back in 2008, I was a sales rep with a pharmaceutical company and, unfortunately, was let go due to a large layoff. After spending a month or two applying for jobs, I decided to look through the classifieds in the sample Chicago Tribune left in my driveway. Trulife had an ad in the paper for a sales rep and I applied and interviewed with Traci Dralle, now President of Fillauer and AOPA. I’m incredibly appreciative and grateful for the opportunity Trulife gave me.
Why do you believe continuing education is important in the O&P industry?
Continuing to learn and educate ourselves is extremely important, especially as the industry and technology evolve. I applaud all of the great minds that continue improving patient mobility and outcomes.
Keeping the industry and our customers educated on all the latest products and technology is no easy feat. Our clinical staff, Sam Brouillette CP, CFo and Liz Hillen, M.Ed., CPO, LPO, have done a great job finding new ways to teach virtually over the past year.
