She served over a decade as a Office Manager, Medical Director, Intern Coordinator and bookkeeper before moving to a special needs trust administrator. During that time, she co-authored an article for Claims Magazine.
“I handle money for disabled people, particularly those who have received a large personal injury or medical malpractice settlement.
“I pay their bills and assist them in large purchases, such as houses, cars, appliances. I open bank accounts, secure insurance. I also set their weekly or monthly allowance and try to teach them how to budget and live within their means."
Her work has been featured in publications such as Huffington Post and Kentucky Forward and she has been selected to be a speaker at the National Guardianship Association Annual Convention in New Orleans in October 2014.
As the mother of a teenager with special needs, Luhys understands the unique challenges of dealing with bureaucracy and government programs and fights for her clients to get the benefits they deserve. As the enclosed feature from KY Forward notes, she has a natural affinity for handling money.
