Looking back over the last decade, Lindsay can see how far she’s come each evening when she returns from work to the cozy home she proudly owns.
“Buying a house is something I never saw happening,” she says of a time in her life when she had no idea how she was going to support a new baby alone. “When you’re a single mom beat up every day by the world, you need a life preserver. For me, that was Climb.”
Besides being a homeowner, Lindsay is also extremely proud of the career she has built at Premier Bone & Joint, her Climb job placement 10 years ago. Since then, she has held both medical and business positions, at one point flying with doctors around the state to treat patients.
Lindsay has watched the business grow significantly, recently building a new surgical center in Laramie. “I’m personally proud of that building,” she says. “I feel like I helped build it with my own hands. They invested in me, so I invested in them.”
Lindsay is also going back to college to finish a degree in healthcare administration. “It’s amazing how building your self-confidence and being supported in your career just infuses into all other aspects of your life.”
