Passionate about faith and family, Jessica leads a busy life. When her conventional socket left her bruised and in pain, she searched for a better solution.  “After trying many different sockets, including the traditional hard plastic type, I discovered the Infinite Socket™ TF. The day of my initial fitting with the Infinite Socket™ TF I walked a long distance unassisted!  For the first time since using a prosthetic I felt no pain and was completely comfortable.”

“Every time I don my LIM socket I feel like I can conquer anything. My Infinite Socket™ has given me the confidence to try things I did not have the courage to attempt when I had two biological limbs. Since receiving my Infinite Socket™ I have attempted to ski and I participated in a 5K. I feel empowered through my adjustable Infinite Socket™ to push my personal boundaries.”

A retired hospice nurse, Jessica has not stopped reaching out to help others. When she is not busy with peer visits and community outreach, Jessica can be found quilting, working through her geneology, refining her photography skills and practicing Muay Thai.  “I wake up everyday and try to be the change I hope to see in the world from today on!”
