Dr. Lockridge graduated in 2022 and will be attending the fellowship at Foot & Ankle Institute Fellowship with Sandra R. Raynor, DPM, FACFAS in Indianapolis, Indiana.

My name is Kimberly Lockridge. I grew up in Denver, Colorado with my loving parents and older brother Michael. I attended the University of Northern Colorado, where I had the opportunity to play Division I basketball and graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Biology.  I then went on to graduate from Kent State College of Podiatric Medicine in Cleveland, OH, where I was a member of the Pi Delta Honor Society.

After completing my externship here, I fell in love with the area and everything the residency program has to offer. During my past 3 years of residency at West Penn, I have learned more than I could have imagined, been challenged more than I thought possible, and never once lacked the support I needed. I am fortunate to have been able to navigate through the ups and downs of residency surrounded by my co-residents, with who I can share a laugh and who are always willing to help, teach and support each other.

I am extremely grateful to be part of the West Penn family and be able to complete my residency training at such a prestigious program. I am most appreciative of having the opportunity to learn and train alongside the most amazing and talented doctors and residents that have made West Penn the prestigious program it is today. I am very thankful for the mentorship that I have received from Dr. Catanzariti, Dr. Hentges, Dr. McMillen, and Dr. Saltrick. They have built my knowledge base, honed my surgical skills, and pushed me to become the very best foot and ankle surgeon that I can be. They go out of their way to teach you all their best tips, tricks, and pearls, including witty catchphrases. They truly care about you as a person and are always there to help you in whatever way you need.

I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to further my training next year at the Foot and Ankle Institute Fellowship with Dr. Sandra Raynor, DPM, FACFAS, in Indianapolis, Indiana.

“I believe that my residency training at West Penn has prepared me to excel in my future career as a foot and ankle surgeon. As residents, we are privileged to gain exposure to a wide range of foot and ankle disorders, which has allowed me to gain specific experience and knowledge that will be invaluable throughout my career. By having the opportunity to follow patients from the initial encounter through the operative and postoperative period, we are taught how to navigate through the clinical decision-making process and develop our own treatment plans and algorithms. Our radiology rounds, lectures, and cadaver labs provide an excellent structure for expanding our knowledge base. Residency is challenging in so many ways, but the faculty and staff are truly dedicated to helping residents thrive. The mentorship that I have received from the attendings has built my solid foundation of academic, surgical, and clinical skills. I am confident that my West Penn residency education has prepared me with all the tools I need to succeed in my career and life.”
