Where did you grow up?
What was your first job?

What is your favourite Chatham-Kent pastime?
Chatham has a lot to offer when trying to stay active! During the summer you will find me on the golf course and through the winter months I will be on a volleyball court 2-3x per week.
What is your favourite season, and why?
My favourite season would have to be Summer. Whether its golfing, swimming, playing tennis or simply going for a walk, Chatham-Kent has so much to offer during the warm summer days.
Name an experience that has positively motivated you.
The most motivational experience for me was the first couple months I started to see clients at my newly established clinic. Following my clients through their treatment plan and seeing extremely positive outcomes is what makes coming to the office each day exciting.
What did you do after high school?
After attending CKSS, I went off to Western and completed my Bachelor of Arts in Kinesiology. Upon completion, I continued at Western for a year and a half to complete my diploma in Pedorthics along with my practical placement with SoleScience, at the Fowler Kennedy Sports Medicine Clinic.
What are you doing now?
I am the Owner and Pedorthist at Simpson Orthotics & Kinetics, here in Chatham, located within Little Chiropractic. I have been here for just over a year now, and have loved every minute of it! My practice specializes in assessment and fabrication of Custom Foot Orthotics. In my clinic I have treated many individuals, each with different goals. Whether you’re a competitive athlete, weekend warrior or want to just get back to activity, we can help. Each pair of Orthotics are different and specific to each individual case, for that reason, I spend at least 30 minutes on initial assessment. We go through gait analysis, weight bearing testing and non-weight bearing testing in order to obtain detailed information to develop the optimal orthotic for your specific needs.

What is your #1 reason for choosing Chatham-Kent as “home”?
For me, there are really two reasons I came back. First, my wife and I were both born and raised in Chatham, and we always wanted to start our family in the town we grew up in. Second, from a business perspective, coming back to Chatham made sense. The connections I had made over the years made it a simple decision for me! Chatham-Kent continues to grow and make a name for itself in South-Western Ontario. I look forward to being a part of this great town for years to come.
