Joshua Sust

Josh has been working at Abilities In Motion for over 5 years as a Patient Adviser and Prosthetic Technician.  He is also a certified Peer Support Visitor for the Amputee Coalition. What that means is if you want to talk to someone that has an idea about limb loss, he is your guy.  He served in the United States Marine Corps for 7 years. On his 3rd deployment he had a bad day at work, where he was hit by a IED.   He was in limb salvage for 3.5 years.  Josh states” In 2015, I made the decision to join the nub club and I have not looked back since.  I’m a left below knee amputee and with that I will always be honest and I will not sugar coat anything. I will try to push you to your abilities and beyond. My goal is to have you succeed. It’s not the end, it’s just a new beginning. No matter who we are, where we come from, or what has happened to us, it does not define who we are. This journey is a marathon not a sprint.”

Samantha M.
Samantha is the Receptionist at Abilities In Motion.  “My children have taught me to be more compassionate and understanding in everyday life and this has helped me in many ways in my professional career as well. I thoroughly enjoy working with people and feel that I am able to connect with others. Working as a receptionist at a prosthetic company is a very rewarding position and it is wonderful to see the different patients and how far they have come. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my 3 children and watching Harry Potter, which I am only slightly obsessed with, reading and being out and enjoying nature.”

Christa C.

Christa is the office manager for Abilities In Motion and has been an integral member of the team since 2017.  She received a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Health from Miami University.  Christa states “For as long as I can remember, I have always had a fascination with health and wellness and I am glad to have found the field of prosthetics. I love the journey our patients take to gain back their independence. Each goal our patients have is significant, whether it’s taking their first step or getting back to their favorite hobby. It brings me joy to play a role in this. Outside of work, I love taking my dog, Lacey, to the park and throwing the frisbee for her. I’m also a huge foodie and I’m always in pursuit of finding new restaurants and food trucks to try.”
Gabriella (Gabby) W.
Gabby is the Authorization Specialist at Abilities In Motion.  She has 10+ years of Customer Service and 3+ years Admin. Assistant experience.  Gabby opens the line of communication between the Services you need and your Health Insurance Provider to get the Approvals that are required.  She’s been working with AIM since 2018 and has loved every second. Her biggest reward is seeing the smile on the faces of Patients after receiving their first prosthesis. “Watching our patients overcome obstacles and win a journey is inspiring and admirable.”
