Tell us about why you applied for a position with Lighthouse.

I honestly had never really thought of working with children with autism before. I had always known I wanted to work in pediatrics but wasn’t sure where. Then Covid hit and I was laid off. I was looking for something different and figured I would give it a try. It was the best decision I could have made!

Tell us about your favorite part of working with your team at Lighthouse.

I absolutely love how encouraging and helpful every one of my teammates are.  We are constantly building each other up.

What is your favorite part of working with the Lighthouse kiddos?

I love everything about the kiddos I work with. They bring a smile to my face and melt my heart. Seeing their progress and growth is so rewarding.

How would you describe your Lighthouse experience?

I love working for LAC! I don’t dread waking up in the morning to go to work. I come in excited for the day and excited to see the kiddos that have stolen my heart.  This job has truly changed my life in such a short time!

Caitlin has three children, ages 8, 4 and 7 months. She loves going to rock concerts and going camping with her family.

Ready for a career where you can make a difference?
