My name is Angela Smalley. I am dual certified as both a Pedorthist and Orthotic Fitter and I am using this blog as a way to record my new discoveries, share information and organize my thoughts. I have a background in health, wellness, sports medicine and biomechanics. My undergraduate degree was in Recreation Therapy and Athletic Training from Houghton College, in graduate school I studied Exercise Science and Health Promotion from California University of Pennsylvania. I am also certified as a Corrective Exercise Specialist through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. One of the main focuses of this blog is to cut through the jargon and write in everyday language. Simplifying complicated concepts is a good way for me to make sure that I fully understand what I am writing about. Feel free to read through my posts and comment or ask questions about relevant topics.
