Proud, Patriotic Employer: Maria Huffman and Foot Levelers

Recently Foot Levelers’ own Maria Huffman was recognized by Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (EGSR) for being a Patriotic Employer! She was nominated by Jason Cain, our employee who is also a proud Marine.

Jason works for Maria in Foot Levelers’ Shipping Department, and he is also a Combat Engineer with the Marines. Previously, he was a Marine Aviation Mechanic, but now he trains other Marines to look for IEDs, which he still does two weekends a month.

ESGR is part of the Department of Defense. ESGR seeks to “foster a culture in which all employers support and value the employment and military services of members of the National Guard and Reserve in the United States.” The Patriot Award honors individual supervisors for their support when nominated by the employee or his/her family.

Congratulations, Maria, and thank you for your service, Jason!

Foot Levelers proudly employs a number of former and current military folks like Jason.

CHEERS is Almost Up (the Special Ends as the Ball Drops!!)

Docs… Don’t forget, we’re honoring code CHEERS until December 31st, 2017! 

Happy Holidays from Us (& Rory!)

We received a special surprise in the mail the other day–all the way from the U.K.! 

Rory Smith is a little boy we had the pleasure of helping earlier in the year.  He and his family sent us this holiday lovely card.

The inside reads, “To all at Foot Levelers: We could not have got through 2017 without you.”

Back at you, Smith family! Hearing from patients like you keeps us going.

Here’s Tammy from Sales & Service with card. 

 

Birthday Surprise for Kent!

Out today, the latest issue of Valley Business Front magazine couldn’t have come at a better time. Today is our CEO Kent’s birthday, and Kent was chosen as one of just eight regional business leaders to earn the distinction of “2017 Business Icon”! Congratulations Kent!

Valley Business Front‘s writers focused on Kent’s personal and professional philanthropy as well as the incredible success of Foot Levelers under his visionary leadership.  It’s a well-deserved honor for our favorite birthday boy! 

Happy birthday Kent, and a big congrats! Thanks for all you do to make Foot Levelers a great place to work and your Southwest Virginia community a better place to live, work, and play. We’re also so proud to be part of your impassioned movement for bringing natural, non-invasive, evidence-based treatment options to patients in pain–not only here, but all around the world, too. You are making a big difference through your work, and we’re honored to be on your “A Team.”

Best wishes, Your Foot Levelers Family

 

 

End of Year CHEERS!

Many of our doctors are celebrating the end of 2017 with savings on Foot Levelers custom orthotics and orthotic footwear. Ask your doctor about ways to save today!

Plus, don’t forget, most Flex Spending Accounts (FSAs) cover custom orthotics and custom orthotic footwear, and some accounts time out on December 31st. Don’t “snooze” and lose out on this great opportunity for healthy, whole-body support with no out-of-pocket expense to you. Act now to start the New Year off right–supported and stabilized with Foot Levelers!

Happy (Almost) Thanksgiving from Foot Levelers!

A few pics from our almost-Thanksgiving Day feast on Tuesday. A big shout-out to Mary and Katie in H.R. who coordinated the lovely meal! (They’re the turkeys pictured in photo 5). 😉 

Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday full of family, friends, and of course, food! 

 

 

 

We Do Halloween Right!

A time honored annual tradition, we Halloween hard here at Foot Levelers. Check out some our folks’ best costumes during our recent celebration.

Giving Back to Our City Schools

Foot Levelers is more than “just” custom orthotics; we’re a technology company, too. Most of the doctors we work with use our proprietary 3D scanning technology to capture images of patients’ feet; these images are instantaneously sent through the magical interwebs to our lab in Roanoke, Virginia. These are the “blueprints” for building patients’ custom orthotics.

Many of those 3D scanning systems include a laptop pre-loaded with our scanning software to help run the machine. When doctors upgrade or switch their systems, sometimes those laptops are no longer needed, so they are returned to us.

L-R: Dan Sweeney, Brian Boggs, Chris Cummings of Foot Levelers and Mark Thompson and Britt Simmons of Roanoke City Schools.

That means we’ve amassed quite a collection of laptops over the last few years–150 to be exact.  We knew we wanted to donate them, but where? Someone suggested our very own Roanoke City Public School System and a plan was hatched! 

School district reps were delighted to have more tools to serve local students. “Just wow!” said Roanoke City Public School’s Director of Technology Mark Thompson. “That was extremely generous.”

Many kudos to Foot Levelers’ Tech Support Team, especially Brian Boggs and Lamont Clements, for working so hard to prepare the laptops for donation.  We were pleased to have members of the media join us for the hand-off yesterday too–you can check out stories from WSLS Channel 10 here and from WDBJ Channel 7 here

 

“Mami” Loves Foot Levelers!

Foot Levelers was honored to be the subject of a recent review on the award-winning parenting blog Mami of Multiples.  

Contributor Niki Lazenby wrote that “one week into wearing my Fiji custom orthotic flip-flops, I can honestly see a huge improvement in my level of back pain!”

In addition to Fiji–which Niki calls her “new favorite pair of flip-flops”–Niki tried running in our XP3 custom orthotics.

“I felt like I was running on clouds!” she wrote.

Not only is Niki a sufferer of Chronic Low Back Pain, she is mom to an energetic toddler. She also has one “on the way”: Niki was seven months pregnant when we first met her at a Florida Chiropractic event! 

We love great reviews, but the best part of working with Niki is knowing that we helped her break the cycle of pain .  Niki had “tried everything,” but it was Foot Levelers plus Chiropractic adjustments that gave her the relief she sought.

Niki is living proof of the power of 40.4

Email us at service@footlevelers.com or send us a message here or on Facebook to tell us your Foot Levelers story. (And if you’re a doctor, be sure to call us today to ask about our ongoing ‘PARTY’ promotion–there’s no better way to get all your patients into custom orthotics, which are research-proven to help with Chronic Low Back Pain like Niki’s!)
