Lacey - Administration Assistant, Step Up Latrobe Valley

Lacey successfully graduated from the first Step Up Latrobe Valley program in 2018.

Lacey enjoyed the Ladder program and gained so much from her experience that she set a goal to become employed by Ladder in the future.  

Lacey was recently employed as an Administrative Assistant with the goal of becoming a Ladder Developmental Coach and has plans next year to study to receive the qualifications. 

Lacey wants to help other young people in the same way she was helped as a teenager and be a physical representation of how successful the Ladder program is and to show her peers that anything is possible. 

“If it wasn’t for Ladder I wouldn’t be the worker I am right now, the constant support I got in this program made me believe in myself and that is something I want to give back!”

Lacey has had some amazing experiences being in program and also working for Ladder, getting the chance to do the AFL record and represent Ladder was an experience that was just unmatched.

Whilst in the Ladder program, Lacey completed a Certificate 3 in Beauty Services as she was passionate about the industry which led to Lacey also starting up her own side business.
