Guiding Injured Workers to a Better Future
After being injured at work, many workers can face some challenges like not being able to go back to their same job field prior to getting injured. In this episode, we dive into some options to help after being injured that can land you a new career path and a job you will love. Joining us is Hazel Ortega from Ortega Counseling Center where they help injured workers find schools with vocational vouchers and other benefits.
Bio: Born in East L.A. and raised in downtown L.A. she was able to shape her life and overcame many obstacles like getting out of poverty, living in a 60-unit apartment sleeping four to a room and barely scraping by to then create a miraculous life for herself. She graduated from High School in her 30s and put herself through college to then built multiple successful businesses. It was not all that great in the beginning though, after working 17 years as a workers’ compensation legal secretary, she became an injured worker. The desk she was using was set up for someone much smaller than her and over the years she developed Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Cubital Tunnel Syndrome along with problems with her neck. The doctors told her she could no longer do same job. After the initial shock and fear, she chose to continue her education in the field of psychology. Today, she is an Educational Psychologist specializing in vocational training for injured workers. A Job she LOVES! Hazel Ortega is a multimillion-dollar business entrepreneur, and Author of Bounced Checks to Private Jets, the Mastery of Miracles.
