My Journey

In 1983 I was working for the Bahnhof Sport Shop in Traverse City, Michigan. I had my first ski orthotics made by Peterson Labs there.

Once in my boots, I instantly felt greater alignment, comfort and support. It was amazing to finally step into my ski boots that truly fit for the first time.

1986 I moved to Hood River. Bruised heels and dented boards were a common occurance while windsurfing.  So in 1989, I invented the Gorge Jumpadz and started North Shore Inc.

During that time we created a Division for making Custom Footbeds. Since 1991 I have been marketing them as Footworx.

In 1996 I completed massage training at the Oregon School of Massage.

During that summer, I passed the Oregon state exam to become a Licensed Massage Therapist.

In 2005 I completed Pedorthic Training at Oklahoma State University at Okamulgee.

Several months later, I passed the Certified Pedorthist (C.Ped) exam.
