Katie Lewis received Employment Services from LIFEDesigns right after transitioning from high school in 2004. Katie chose LIFEDesigns for her services because she felt they were truly in it for the individual and seeing them succeed in the community. She currently works at Bell Trace Senior Living Community where she has been a receptionist for the last three years. Katie’s favorite thing about her job is the residents she works with as she loves building relationships with people and being a bright spot in someone’s day. Katie said she truly does not think she could have found a better place to work. With LIFEDesigns support she has been able to live on her own for the past five years and remain an active part of the community. Her long term goal is to write a story about the obstacles she has overcome in her own life in hopes of being an advocate for others to feel inspired that they do can do it. Katie feels she would not be where she is today without the support she has been given, and would strongly recommend LIFEDesigns to anyone with a disability who needs assistance.
