Tell us about why you applied for a position with Lighthouse.
“Lighthouse has a great mission. I really saw an opportunity to make a difference through a position with Lighthouse.”
What is your favorite memory from your time at Lighthouse?
“This past Fall, a child had a program that involved practicing trick or treating. Over the course of two months, this child would come into my office and practice trick or treating. I would give her a token that was supposed to indicate a piece of candy. It was such a pleasure interacting with her and her RBT and knowing that I could play even the very smallest part in helping her become more comfortable with trick or treating. It was the highlight of my day!”
How would you describe your Lighthouse experience?
“My experience so far working at Lighthouse has been refreshing. I had previously worked for a non-profit but was discouraged that they were not making a difference in the community. In my short time with LAC I’ve seen an incredible amount of impact on not only the kiddos but the families as well with the work that the team does. I’m incredibly proud to work for LAC!”
When not leading Lighthouse’s recruiting efforts, Laney enjoys spending time outdoors, watching football and collecting stamps.
