Tell us about why you applied for a position with Lighthouse.
I have always had a passion for working with kiddos and helping people. Since I knew that I wanted to be able to make a bigger impact in the lives of children with special needs, Lighthouse seemed like a natural fit! My aunt has Down Syndrome and she has been an inspiration in pursuing a career in this field.
Can you share a favorite part or memory about working with your Lighthouse teammates?
I love how supportive and encouraging my teammates are. Coming to work is easy when you have such a wonderful group of people to share the day with. I would not be able to do what I do without each of them!
Can you share a favorite part or memory about working with the Lighthouse kiddos?
The best feeling in the world is when you look back on when a child first started and see just how much they have achieved in their time with us. It is such a joy to be a part of their lives and help them grow!
Outside of work, Katie Beth enjoys spending time with her husband and their rescue dog Sage. She also enjoys photography and hiking.
