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

I recently got into Ball State University’s Applied Behavior Analysis masters program!

Do you have a favorite quote?

Every day is the first day of the rest of your life.

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

When you see a client you’ve worked with in the halls, and they get excited to see you, or if you get to float on an old client and see their progress since you have been switched off one another.

Thank you to our staff for Maximizing Those Who Struggle,

Embracing Those Who Love and Fulfilling Those Who Serve.
