Creative Living's Intern Katie and her job coach Meredith is in this month's "In the Spotlight" section.

We'd like to introduce Creative Living's phenomenal intern named Katie. She's been working with Creative Living for the past two years on database management, annual membership mailings, updating our Facebook page and, most of all, keeping our office organized.

Katie is involved with the TOPs program, which is a collaboration between Andover and North Andover Public Schools and Northern Essex Community College. This exceptional program works with transition students to prepare them for a future of working and living independent lives. Through TOPs, Katie takes college classes at Northern Essex's Haverhill campus where she enjoys taking photography and dance, along with many computer classes. Katie also is a frequent overnight guest at Creative Living during our TOPs overnights where she has lots of fun going to plays, museums, and learning independent life skills. We're so happy to have Katie in our lives!
