Living in Ecuador and volunteering with Range of Motion Project illuminated Emily’s interest in the dynamic world of orthotics and prosthetics. Now, as a masters student in Orthotics & Prosthetics at Baylor College of Medicine, she attributes her connection with the organization to her future career.
Emily’s role with ROMP has evolved. Early on, she generated funds for ROMP executing an art auction in Portland, through leading a ‘Climbing for ROMP’ event in Oregon and via running the Sunriver marathon & Lima 42k. Most recently, she pursued a Fulbright funded research fellowship in Ecuador, assessing the functional ability of lower limb amputees. She recorded data from 199 subjects and is currently working on publishing her findings. Emily is positive, active and outgoing and hopes to forever be a ROMP Ambassador!
