It has been a pleasure over the last two years to serve on the board of directors and most recently accept a nomination to the executive committee as secretary/treasurer. I have worked with ABFAS for over ten years in many different capacities. I look forward to continuing to serve the board as well as my colleagues as we continue to make improvements to the exam and certification process. We have a lot of work to do in providing a fair and reputable standard for all podiatrists who are looking to obtain full surgical privileges and insurance panel inclusion. I appreciate your consideration in allowing me to continue to serve the board.
