Nicholas has worked as a technician for several years now and is currently applying for certification. He has worked on and off in orthotic facilities since elementary school. He has an interest in reading just about anything he can lay his hands on, which explains why he has a bachelor’s degree from Carleton in law and history. He also acquired a degree from Algonquin College in culinary management because good food is always a good idea. He has volunteered for the Canadian cancer society, and now enjoys spending “peaceful” evenings with his wife and two young sons.

Mark has spent a lifetime mastering the craft of orthotic manufacturing. Mark began his career in 1987 after graduating from George Brown College. He did his internship at House of Kraft, one of the earliest orthotics facilities in the nation’s capital, before being recruited by Stephen Grundy for his new company. Since then Mark has been an integral part of the company’s operation, and a mentor to young technicians and clinicians alike. He maintains an active lifestyle by skiing and walking his dog. He also has a great love of bagpipes and west coast scotch.
