Jamie Graham – American Board Certified Pedorthist
Jamie’s personal experience with foot and ankle issues inspired her passion for Pedorthics. While pursuing her degree in Psychology, she recognized her interest in the medical field from working at Christiana Hospital in the Patient Relations Department as a liaison between doctors and patient’s families. It wasn’t, however, until she began working at New Balance that she discovered how retail and the medical field coincides. “Who knew that there was so much to fitting shoes?” It was while working for New Balance that Jamie developed her passion for Pedorthics. “After years of running and injuries, I never realized why I had so many problems, until my training at New Balance. After visiting a Podiatrist and being fitted for orthotics I realized the importance of having the right shoes to accommodate them properly. It was then that I became really interested in Pedorthics, and fell in love with the profession.”
In February of 2009, Jamie attended Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine and Eneslow School of Pedorthics where she received her pre-certification in Pedorthics and passed her board exams in May of 2009. She is certified by the American Board Certification of Orthotics, Prosthetics, and Pedorthics and has continued her education by shadowing local Sports Medicine Podiatrists and Physical Therapists and by attending the 2010, 2011, and 2013 Pedorthic Footcare Association (PFA) Annual Symposiums.
To stay active in the community, Jamie offers education sessions to local groups on foot health and footwear, volunteers with the Special Olympics helping size athletes for orthotics and shoes, sponsors a racing team of local runners, holds a weekly group run from the store, works with local running clubs and sponsors races. She remains an active member of the PFA, the American Board Certification of Pedorthics, and Pike Creek Valley Running Club.
