Serving as a school psychologist since 2022, Lewis first began his work with the schools in 2003, when he was hired as a Behavior Assistant.

In 2007, Lewis transitioned to a school counselor, a position he held until 2013, when he was selected for the role of Mental Health Counselor. Lewis served in that capacity for nearly 10 years until his most recent appointment as school psychologist.

Throughout his time with Clovis Schools, Lewis has also worked in the mental health field in the community, providing clinical services through partnership with local providers until 2010, when he launched a private practice in Clovis.
