Kimberly Lewis: ‘Every day is a great day’
Here is the Kimberly Lewis story in two quotes: Before: “My one goal back then was just to meet my need for drugs. Everything in my life surrounded my addiction.” Today: “I’m learning how to live sober for the first time in a very long time. I’m always looking at myself and being responsible for my actions – just wanting to be better each day.” Lewis went from an addiction to pain medication to heroin use in a short time. Fraud and forgery led to a 15-year prison sentence. She served a little more than one-third of that time, beginning the road to recovery in prison. On her first day in work release, she became aware of an employment opportunity at ClickGoodwill. Her career there continues to grow after two-plus years.
