We are so happy to congratulate Kristen Beltran, who has completed her Residency in Prosthetics and Orthotics at Dankmeyer, Inc. Kristen is now Board Eligible - and that means time to take some tests!
Originally from Kalamazoo, MI, Kristen joined the Dankmeyer team in 2015 to do her double residency. She received a BS in Therapeutic Recreation with a Mathematics minor from Grand Valley State University, followed by her Master’s in Prosthetics and Orthotics from Northwestern University. Kristen first became interested in prosthetics and orthotics in high school, where she had a soccer coach who wore a prosthetic leg. She has worked with adaptive sports and recreation programs over the years. Since coming to Dankmeyer, she has participated for the last two years in a local middle school 3D E-Nable project, providing resources for middle schoolers in the STEM program to learn about prosthetics and orthotics and the use of 3D technology.
