Enoch is originally from eastern Idaho and received his undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University in Provo in 2000. After working at the Idaho National Laboratory west of Idaho Falls for several years, he decided to make a career change to prosthetics and orthotics, partly inspired by one of his son’s use of custom ankle braces. He and his family moved to Dallas, Texas, where Enoch attended the University of Texas Southwestern, graduating with a Masters in Prosthetics and Orthotics in 2014. He then completed a two-year residency at the Dallas VA Medical Center, where he gained valuable experience working with patients having a wide range of prosthetic and orthotic needs.
In January 2017, Enoch returned to the Northwest when he joined Tri-Cities Orthotics & Prosthetics. His wife and four children now call the Tri-Cities their home. Enoch enjoys working with patients from all age groups and he enjoys the inherent challenges and creativeness that is often required to find effective prosthetic and orthotic solutions for those patients.
