Kevin Graham, a 24 year-old Opportunity Services client in Tallahassee, Florida has been employed in his dream job with Lucy and Leo’s Cupcakery since February 2011. Lucy and Leo’s Cupcakery is a one-of-a-kind bakery in Tallahassee that opened in 2009. They only use fresh ingredients and make everything from scratch! A winner of numerous awards and steady growth since it’s grand opening, Lucy and Leo’s Cupcakery focuses on their strong community ties through fundraisers, donations, workshops and more! Kevin’s duties on the job are frosting and decorating the cupcakes alongside the storeowner, Paula Lucas. Paula has nothing but good things to say about Kevin working at Lucy and Leo’s Cupcakery. “Our days are brighter when Kevin is here,” said Paula. “He has truly transformed since joining the team. At first he was shy, but he has come out of his shell. Kevin is an amazing asset and very efficient on the job. He often knows the flavors better than anyone else!”

Kevin said his favorite part of the job is making the frosting from scratch while listening to music, and trying the cupcakes, of course! Kevin truly enjoys working at Lucy and Leo’s Cupcakery because of his fun job duties and the friendly staff there. He is truly happy working at his dream job! Before he worked at Lucy and Leo’s, Kevin was a volunteer with various organizations, but couldn’t quite find the right work fit. Opportunity Services helped him find this open position and have continued to provide him with the needed on-the-job supports.
