John King says his life’s calling is to serve others. This is evidenced by his military service as a Hospital Corpsman during the Vietnam War, his pursuit of a bachelor’s degree in occupational therapy, and his avocational pursuits such as singing and playing guitar at folk mass or at the hospice where he volunteers. King says he was introduced to prosthetics while touring New England Brace Company in Hookset, New Hampshire, and decided a career as an O&P patient care provider was a natural extension of his calling. He became ABC-certified in prosthetics after completing the short-term prosthetic courses offered at New York University, New York. He now provides prosthetic care at Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital, Grand Rapids, Michigan.
