ABA Therapist

Who or what inspires you? And why?

Who inspires me is Ashley Wiley, a BCBA at the Cornerstone Avon location! She inspires me to continue to work towards my dream!

What goals have you accomplished since coming to Cornerstone? Or what are some goals that are currently in progress?

The recent goal I have accomplished since coming to Cornerstone is starting my dream job! My next goal is to obtain my BA in ABA with a minor in American Sign Language.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?

The best advice I’ve been given is always to follow your dreams. I was stuck for a long time, knowing I wanted to work with children, but I didn’t know what precisely that was until I found Cornerstone!

What’s your favorite thing about working with children with autism?

My favorite thing about working with children with autism is making memories with them and playing with them. Another thing is seeing their progress!

What’s your favorite memory so far here at Cornerstone?

My favorite memory at Cornerstone is when the Avon staff painted pumpkins for a team builder!

Thank you to our staff for Maximizing Those Who Struggle,

Embracing Those Who Love and Fulfilling Those Who Serve.
