Meet Eric Schopmeyer
Eric Schopmeyer is the Regional Clinical Operations Manager for Transcend’s South Bend, Indianapolis, Merrillville and Greenwood offices. Eric began his career at Transcend 16 years ago working during summer breaks. After graduating from college with a focus in Mechanical Engineering, Eric returned to Transcend and quickly decided that his interest in orthotics could be a permanent career. Becoming an orthotist allowed Eric to utilize his engineering background and feed his love of working with people.
Eric became a Certified Orthotist through the American Board for Certification and soon began working with patients in Indianapolis, Greenwood, and Cincinnati.
Assuming his current position in 2015, Eric is continually challenged and inspired by his role at Transcend. “The orthotics and prosthetics industry has changed significantly and Transcend is at the forefront of that movement. From designing and building mobile labs, to developing new brace designs, to leading the industry in adopting scanning, to carving feet out of foam with CAD/CAM technology, we continue to innovate. Transcend also invests in our most important asset — our employees — with continued training to help everyone reach their highest potential.”
Eric believes the culture, vision, and people are what truly make Transcend unique. “We have grown from 10 to almost 200 people. Our leadership treats us like family. They care about everyone here and want what is best for them. They strive to make a difference not only in the patient’s lives but in the lives of their employees.”
Eric and his wife Megan live with their four children, Tyler, Magdalene, William, and Benjamin in the South Bend area. Eric feels blessed by the opportunities he has been offered and the fact that he still comes to work every day loving what he does.
