I am honored to be nominated for a position on the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery board. I feel that my experience with various committees in ABFAS makes me an excellent choice for this board position. I have had the privilege of collaborating with various ABFAS volunteers around the country in supporting the organization over the past ten years. I feel it would be an honor to represent the board and continue to promote the ABFAS as the premier board certification for foot and ankle surgeons.
