Alan started working in the profession with Gerald in the summer of 1985 during his final two years of high school. He started prosthetic school in 1992 following graduation from West Virginia University. Alan became certified in 1998 in both Prosthetics and Orthotics, just like his father had twenty years earlier. Also like his father, Alan continues to seek training and education in order to stay abreast of recent O & P developments and technologies.
