Tell us about why you applied for a position with Lighthouse.
I have always loved helping other people. Before coming to Lighthouse, I worked with adults with special needs. While I enjoyed that, I was looking for a change, and and for a while I was working with adults. I then decided that I wanted to start working with kids and I have loved every minute of it.
