Garth attended the University of Puget Sound and received a BA in Business Communication with a minor in Psychology. He worked as an emergency medical technician (EMT) for Shepard Ambulance and soon developed an interest in medicine and rehabilitation. He became involved in prosthetics and orthotics in 1992, and went on to work in both technical and clerical positions. He later attended the University of Washington, completed the Prosthetics and Orthotics program, and continued working in the Seattle area.
After a sabbatical spent traveling and acquiring his US Coast Guard and UK Captain’s licenses, he returned to the field and moved to Olympia where he volunteered with the Lacey Fire Department and worked for two years with Collier Prosthetics before starting Sound Prosthetics and Orthotics at the same location in June of 2004.
Garth has enjoyed volunteer work in both Guatemala and Mexico since 2006, at times completing multiple trips each year.
Sound P&O has grown steadily from a two person clinic to now 8 employees. The clinic has developed a reputation for success with difficult to fit prosthetic needs, and unique and challenging orthotic cases. Clients and referring physicians have appreciated our personal approach and attention to detail.
