George resides in Lutcher with his beuatiful wife, Rachel, of 43 years. He retired from Valero in 2015 after 30 years in the oil and gas business. He didn’t think he would be working again until his daughter Brittany, owner of POA, acquired bacterial meningitis while attending college. When Brittany lost her legs to the disease, and was living in constant pain, he was determined to get her the help she needed. He sought out POA of Florida and Stan! After he saw how they helped her live pain free, he wanted to also help others that are going through similar experiences. When Brittany opened here in Louisiana, George came out of retirement and quickly got on board customizing prosthesis! The rest is history!
George enjoys spending time with his family, including his 4 grandkids – Collyn, Cale, Cohen and of course Cyan!
