Kaitlynn Williams, ABA Therapist

Cornerstone introduced me to ABA Therapy, which quickly became my passion. It has motivated me to go back to school, which has always been my goal. Each semester completed is an accomplishment, and I can’t wait to graduate with the education to help these kiddos further!

I love working with these kiddos and seeing them thrive. They work so hard every day to overcome challenges, and their success is fantastic to see. All of these kids are truly inspiring!

“Some days are better; some days are worse. Look for the blessing instead of the curse. Be positive, stay strong, and get enough rest. You can’t do it all, but you can do your best.”

Join the Celebration!
