Getting to Know You – Katie Samuels, Outreach Worker
|What is your job title?
What do you do on an average day at work?
I think as everyone else has stated things crop up that you least expect. On a recent visit to a client’s house, the smoke alarm dropped off the ceiling so I had to ensure that this would be replaced.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
The thanks I get from clients when we have arranged something or improved their current situation. Sometimes it can be simply giving them confidence to achieve a goal.
Why do you work for Deaf Direct or your connection to deafness?
Why wouldn’t I work for a company where people are paramount?
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself?
My first ever job was as a lifeguard whilst studying at school.
