While being a full-time student at Winona State and searching for a job in the Winona area, it was important for me to find a company that allowed me to apply my coursework as a movement science major and psychology minor to support individuals who are often underserved and considered most vulnerable in our society. Therefore, after discovering Legacies at a career fair I had determined this was the company I could accomplish this at. My two and a half years working as a Direct Support Professional was dedicated to supporting my clients to develop independent living skills so they can lead fulfilling goal-oriented lives. What I did not understand when discovering the company was how much of an impact this place of work would have on me as a student with a goal of one day becoming an occupational therapist. My job at Legacies has been nothing but a positive experience. The amount of support given to staff and clients has allowed me to grow into the individual that I am today. I was able to walk beside clients that truly strive to use our services to better themselves and surpass all the goals I had in mind for our time together. I was able to impact my clients in so many aspects, yet they left one of the biggest impacts on me. I will always remember each of the roles the clients and staff had in starting my career path.
