Meghann Wann, ABA Therapist

Our clients inspire me each day. It is such a blessing to get to watch them grow and learn. I love watching them master a new skill and getting to cheer along with them. Their perseverance to achieve goals is something that inspires me daily.

My favorite quote has always been, “People may forget what you said, or what you did, but not how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou. The best advice I’ve ever been given is, “Just take it one day at a time.”

My favorite thing about working with children with autism is seeing the joy that they have. I love finding the things that make them smile and then enjoying those things with my clients. It’s also a joy to see things from a different perspective.

There are far too many unforgettable memories at Cornerstone for me to count! I have truly enjoyed so many parts of being in the community built here. The clients and staff are what makes this job so fun and rewarding. I feel privileged to be part of such an amazing team.

One-Of-A-Kind One-Liners

Asking Maddie to pick just a few of her favorite memories of Jayden was a tough task! We surely miss his quip remarks and bubbly personality, but we are proud of everything he has accomplished.
