  • @thelearninglamp:The Employee Spotlight this week features Heidi Buchan, our Fingerprint Specialist and Prevention Assistant at The Learning Lamp. Heidi has called our main office home for fingerprinting services for over three years now. Her office sees the most activity of any at TLL and is the source of thousands of new faces every year. It’s a common occurrence for someone to visit for a fingerprinting appointment then end up being reunited with an old friend who works in the main office. “I really enjoy working in a friendly environment with some pretty great co-workers,” says Buchan. “And I appreciate working for an organization that does so much for children in our area.” We’re also appreciative of Heidi and all the work she does for us. Thank you, Heidi!
