Colin Storey Orthotist/Clinical Director
I have over 30 years of extensive experience in the Orthotic industry, servicing the Waikato area. Being a third generation 'Storey' orthotist, I get great satisfaction from helping my clients lead active lives through the aid of orthoses. Although my specialty is paediatrics, I enjoy assisting all people and encouraging natural mobility.
Problem-solving is my passion and I strive to get to the bottom of any niggle, no matter how big or small. Outside our rooms, you’ll find me spending time with my family. We have two grown-up children and two grandkids, who keep me young. I have a keen interest in NZ early history, vintage cars and vintage motoring. I own a 1936 MGSA Keller that I am restoring, so I can also be found happily tucked away in my garage.
Warning - I come with a sense of humour!
Janeen Laimbeer Breast Prothesis Specialist/Administration Director
While employed as a Practice Manager with another orthotics company, Colin trained me in the measuring and fitting of compression clothing, as some female clients preferred to be seen by a female rather than the male orthotists. When we formed Orthotic House, it was a natural progression for me to continue with the compression training by completing courses run by the companies that now provide me with their garments.
From there I moved on to training in the measuring and fitting of breast prostheses and bras for women following breast surgery. In the privacy of my consulting room, I can help with these decisions.
Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. The family part consists of my husband, two sons, their partners and four beautiful grandchildren (not that I am biased in any way). We have three classic cars and enjoy getting away from the various trips organised by the clubs we belong to.
Kerry Vickers Orthotist
I joined the team at Orthotic House as a part-time Orthotist in 2007. I am registered with the national body, NZOPA, and endeavour to attend any training and education opportunities that arise to keep my skills and knowledge current. My initial training was done at Waikato Hospital under the supervision of Colin’s father, Harold Storey.
On my return to Orthotics, it was pleasing to see a real progression in attitude and in the products available to our clients. I believe our team here at Orthotic House stay in touch with the latest ideas and are focused on providing knowledge and a service pertinent to our clients’ personal requirements.
I had a break from Orthotics and during that time my husband and I farmed 1600 acres in the King Country while raising a family of two daughters and two sons. On my days away from Orthotic House, I am a volunteer Ambulance Officer in Te Awamutu. My spare time is spent with family and friends enjoying the outdoors, playing soccer and fishing.
You're one step closer to freedom.
