I am a LAKA with a total knee on the right….I love adventures and after my total knee I have had many…I have hike on the AT….Trekked to Mt. Everest….and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro ……It has made my dreams come true and so much more!!!

My treatment and recovery

A little difficult being an amputee but I worked nonstop to get motion back in my knee after a fusion and I’m proud of the 90 degrees that I finally got. A year later I hiked the Crest Trail.


Don’t be afraid and set goals...When you reach them, Set some more!

My Second First

Because of my orthopaedic care, I can ride mountain bikes, travel to Nepal and trek to Everest and Annapurna.
