Abbey Hazelbaker, Alumna Orthotic Resident
“I wore a back brace, a Boston brace for scoliosis, for three and a half years. So having that personal experience, and the relationship with my practitioner, I really decided I could make a good impact on a child with scoliosis.”

Abbey Hazelbaker is an alumna of the Prosthetics-Orthotics Program. Abbey received treatment and wore a brace for scoliosis as a child. The relationship she built with her orthotic practitioner inspired her to become an orthotist herself.
