I'm a social worker. I work for a private consulting and case management firm here in the Chicago area. All my clients are catastrophic injury, so mostly spinal-cord and brain injuries. And I start with them from close to a day or two after initial injury. I work with them with and the families in the facilities—work with them in the hospital, rehab, back home. Modify the homes, work with contractors—getting them equipment, vehicles, back to school—whatever the case may be, kind of the whole process. I travel a lot, I have clients all over Illinois, Indiana, I have some clients in Kansas City now, Philadelphia, upper Wisconsin, so I do a lot of traveling. Most of the time it's just for the day, so it's nice, I can leave early in the morning, be gone most of the day, and back home in the early evening. Then I can take the next day off and work at home, so it's nice.
