Caitie Steele is a student from Iowa.  She is a current student at Salus University getting her Masters in Orthotics and Prosthetics. Steele is one of ROMP’s 2024 Ambassador team and plans on using her passions and experiences to help spread community awareness for ROMP.

Apart from school, work, and being a ROMP ambassador, Steele is an avid traveler and enjoys staying active.

Her ‘Why’: I decided I wanted to work with the design of prosthetics since about 7th grade, but it wasn't until I volunteered with ROMP that I realized my passion for patient care and creating equal access for all. After my first trip to Ecuador I absolutely fell in love with the program, its mission, and the people that I couldn't stay away! I have been on three volunteer trips with ROMP so far, I'm excited to go yet again this year, and I'm even more excited for the opportunity to get even more involved as an ambassador!

Favorite ROMP Moment: Asking for one favorite memory is so hard because there are so many, but one of the most memorable for me occurred at the conclusion of the first clinical brigade I volunteered at in Ecuador. After the last delivery of the week was made, a speaker was brought out and the main clinic space was cleared out and the patients and volunteers all had a big dance party to celebrate. Many of the patients had just taken their first steps that week since their amputation and were now they were up and teaching us all their favorite dances!
