I Am a Small Business Owner, a Valued Employee and Most Importantly, a Tax Payer!

My name is Katy Hull and I am a small business owner, a valued employee and most importantly, a tax payer! When I was in high school, I decided that I wanted to go to college and with the help of my transition team, this became real to me. I worked in the college library and had a second job working at a local restaurant. After college, I worked in an office filing, copying, shredding and putting packets together. I was only working part time and needed to make more money. I became part of pilot program that helped me create my dream business which is called SlushFun; a frozen drink machine rental business. I have also been able to expand my business through my Plan to Achieve Self Support (PASS) through the Social Security office. I have worked for United Cerebral Palsy as an AmeriCorps Vista Volunteer and I currently work for the Arc of Gregg County answering the phone, putting together mailers and creating community support, by being a member of local service clubs. I receive home and community based services, which have supported me to achieve all of this. Also, I really like to PARTY!
