Kevin is a graduate of the University of Texas (UT), Southwestern School of Allied Health Sciences in Dallas, Texas. His Bachelor of Science degree in Prosthetics and Orthotics was achieved in 1988 and he is certified in Prosthetics and Orthotics by the American Board for Certification. Kevin has an extensive array of continuing education credits with an emphasis in upper extremity prosthetics.
For years, Kevin worked in a small private practice in Gun Barrell City, Texas under tutelage of John William Potter CPO. In 1992, Kevin moved to NovaCare Orthotics and Prosthetics in Fort Worth, Texas where he worked with Jim Alaimo CPO FAAOP. When Jim left to become Vice President of Clinical Services for NovaCare, Kevin assumed the managerial responsibilities of the Fort Worth office. He was one of the first prosthetists to receive training on the Ischial Containment fitting techniques in 1995. His interest in advanced fitting techniques took him to New Jersey later that year and he became Clinical Director for NovaCare in Edison, NJ. Kevin became interested in further specialization and joined the first National Upper Extremity Prosthetics Program in 1996. He continued to hone his skills in that arena and became known in the region as a specialist in upper and lower extremity prosthetics. Kevin has patients that travel long distances to seek his services. He is an active member of the ABC and is currently the Assistant Site Coordinator for the ABC Prosthetics Exam in addition to being a prosthetist at Prosthetic Orthotic Solutions International.
Kevin is a very passionate and lively personality. He is not easily flustered or put off by a challenging situation. He is gifted with exceptional hand skills and can take an idea from his head and translate it out to his hands. “I became interested in the field of orthotics and prosthetics by accident, although I had always wanted to be in some type of allied health services,” says Kevin. “My grandfather was an engineer and a clock maker, my great grandfather was a lighthouse attendant and an artist. I have been blessed with their hand skills and my father’s analytical thought processes that lend itself well to this field.”
“Being able to translate my ideas to my hands and hyper-focus on the task at hand along with my ability to put people at ease and make them comfortable are my greatest strengths. What I enjoy most about working with patients is getting instant feedback and gratification from helping others. I am blessed and proud to be in this profession.”
