I am a graduate student at the International Institute of Orthotics and Prosthetics (IIOP) in beautiful Tampa, Florida. At IIOP, I am acquiring skills in the field of orthotics and prosthetics, with a goal of becoming a licensed and certified Prosthetist/Orthotist.
I spent all my childhood and adolescence around the O&P field thanks to my father, Mark Miller, CPO. When I went off to college, I made it a point to stay involved in the field by working as a Lab Technician in Cincinnati, Ohio at Rocco Prosthetics and Orthotics. After working in fabrication for 3 years, I furthered my skills and became a certified prosthetic and orthotic assistant, allowing me to practice patient care and social skills. With this certification, experience, and the proper pre-requisite courses, I was accepted into the International Institute of Orthotics and Prosthetics Master’s program for O&P. Now, I have my sights set on finding a residency program that will present me with exceptional learning opportunities to become the best practitioner I can be.
