"I was fortunate to connect with Lutherwood when the company I was working with closed 22 years ago. As part of the readjustment committee, I helped place my former coworkers and as a result became employed by Lutherwood. Over the years I have had the pleasure of helping countless clients move forward with their lives in a more positive way. Everyone cares about being here and they love what they are doing! I wish Lutherwood continued success!" — Shelley Johnston, Program Data Lead
