aspects. She enjoys working in a field that allows her to work with people that want to get back to their everyday
activities and more. Michelle is also a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist; her goal is get everyone she
works with up and moving whether it’s walking around their home, running a 5K, biking, hiking, or working-out.

Cerfitied Prosthetist and Certified Strength and
Jeremy received his bachelor degree in behavioral science and health from the University of Utah. He then
studied prosthetics at the University of Connecticut, graduating in 2003. He completed his prosthetics residency in
Las Vegas in 2004, where he continued to work in private practice until 2012. Jeremy was then offered an
opportunity to work for the military in San Diego, California, working with active duty service men/women who had
suffered amputation. There he was able to learn and practice high tech prosthetics, including running prosthetics,
sports prostheses, microprocessor controlled prosthetics and complex cases such as multiple limb amputation and
heterotopic ossification (HO). Working with wounded warriors inspired Jeremy to push himself further in his own
limitations. He enjoys surfing, wake boarking, kayaking, hiking and riding his Harley. He's completed several 5K's and
hiked 12 miles into the Grand Canyon in 2015. He is a proud husband and father of 3 children and loves to spend
time with his family outdoors. Jeremy's greatest training in prosthetics came from being a tri-lateral amputee himself.
He's had the opportunity to try, on himself, almost every type of prosthesis available in both upper and lower limb
prosthetics. This helps him design and fit the prosthetics he provides for the patients he works with. Jeremy returned
to Las Vegas to work with his close friends at NOP in 2014 and is very excited to be a part of this amazing team.
