Spotlight: Getting to know the DD community

Stephanie Brausey, Hocking County Board of DD Community Supports Department Assistant, recently sat down with Lindsay Hunt to get to know her.

When Brausey asked 20-year-old Lindsay Hunt what she wanted people to know about her, she responded, 'I'm fun to hang out with!' Hunt is absolutely fun to hang out with as Brausey asked for a 10 minute interview and left an hour and a half later.

Hunt has a Cerebral Palsy diagnosis, but she does not let that stop her from doing things that she loves to do. She has a very active and busy lifestyle as a member of the community, including working two days at Goodwill, two days a week at Can Do Creations, and one day a week at Hocking Valley Industries.

Hunt said that she enjoys being around people and making friends - 'Talking is my talent, I never shut up!' and her mom laughed and concurred with that statement.

In addition to making friends, Hunt's family is important to her, she is known in her family as the 'Queen of War' because she always wins at the card game War.

She enjoys when her grandma visits because her grandma tells her stories and reads books to her! Hunt also likes going to the movies with her niece and nephew, teasing her siblings, listening to music, especially her celebrity crush Blake Shelton, and eating out (which has to be Pizza Crossing or Dairy Queen).
