John Huster, BOCP, and co-owner of PSL Fabrication, Fulton, Missouri, became interested in the O&P profession through his mother, who was working for a patient care facility about the same time he was finishing college. He says it looked like interesting work so he started “bending metal” at PSL and became an orthotic technician in 1995. He eventually worked his way into a management position, purchasing the business with PSL co-owner, Mike Verhoff in 2001. As he progressed in O&P, however, Huster found his true calling in prosthetics and earned his prosthetics certification in September 2012. Today he practices in the patient care facility that Verhoff purchased in 2011. Huster says that being an owner and manager of a fabrication facility and a certified prosthetist gives him a unique perspective that brings a technical point of view to his clinical work and a clinical point of view to his technical work.
