Dr. Nathan Ivey comes from the Pacific Northwest and is from a family of 10. He got his podiatry degree from the California College of Podiatric Medicine in 1999. Eventually, the lack of sun got to him and his wife, so they uprooted and moved down to New Mexico, where he has been in practice ever since. His specialty is in rearfoot and ankle reconstruction, but he is also adept at using orthotics to correct issues that would otherwise require surgery. He is a business owner who is familiar with the stresses and obstacles involved in running a practice and taking over a practice. Over the years, he has built a sense of resiliency into his entrepreneurial style—something we can all learn from.

His story is one of legend—and, like many legends, we can learn a lesson or two from it.
