Demetre received a Kinesiology degree from The University of Western Ontario (UWO) in 2000. He then went on a received a Certified Pedorthist diploma from UWO in 2002, became a Certified Pedorthist Technician in 2003. He has been practicing pedorthics since 2003 working for many medical clinics both big and small. Demetre has worked with Todd and LeeAnn Russett since 2003, and they continued their professional relationship when Russett Rehabilitation was started in 2010.
Demetre believes that working in an environment with various clinicians, such as Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Nurses and Physicians has given his patients the best options towards recovery. He also believes that working within a multi-disciplinary clinic such as Russett Rehabilitation is an ideal environment.
Recognising the need for high quality orthotics in 2008, he and a fellow physiotherapist opened an orthotic manufacturing facility named BioMech Orthotic Group. This has since expanded and Demetre is now manufacturing and repairing custom footwear, braces, leather and vinyl goods, repairs to medical seating surfaces, and recently custom coatings for various markets.
In 2008, he also began teaching Pedorthic students through the College of Pedorthics of Canada and UWO program, where he also mentored students in the clinic and at the laboratory facility. He was also invited to teach a lower limb unit on the foot, for a 4th year research course at UWO with a fellow Physiotherapist for a few years.
Demetre has worked across Canada in the Pedorthic field but has always returned home to London, ON where he currently resides with his family. Work keeps him busy and occupied but never enough to be away from the great outdoors as he is an avid Outdoorsman.
