Life After Injury
One man, Mr. H., recovered from a back injury while working in a warehouse at a big box store. He is young and still has many years left in his career. Mr. H. worked hard on his vocational goals and his return to work was quick.
Vocational Specialist Richard Kustera was able to find him a positon that utilizes his past warehouse and supervisory experience. The new position will require less physical activity and more computer skills. Mr. H. will actually earn a higher wage and the new position offers advancement opportunities.
“I enjoyed working with Mr. H. He was determined to return to work and took my advice on a weekly basis. Clients like Mr. H. make my job enjoyable and remind me why I went to school for rehabilitation counseling — to help others improve their situation in life and overcome barriers.” Richard Kustera, MRC, CRC, CEAS.
