Meet Our Staff
A Winston Salem native, Cynthia Tierney started working in healthcare in 1991 with an administrative position for The Custom Source, Inc, a family owned orthotics and prosthetics company. With a background in computers, Tierney found ways to automate patient billing and streamline the ordering process. She became proficient as a billing specialist and worked in claims for five years. “Once I realized I would rather work directly with a patient than with an insurance company, I set my sights on becoming a Certified Orthotist,” says Tierney when asked about why she became an Orthotist. As a certified practitioner, she has found her greatest professional joy – helping people by creating and providing custom orthotic and prosthetic devices, designed especially for the patient’s individual need. In 2015, she decided to continue her career in O&P by opening Tierney Orthotics and Prosthetics Inc.
