I moved here from Oregon five years ago and have loved living here in beautiful Colorado Springs. My first job here was teaching preschool and pre-kindergarten, I taught for 3 and a half years. During this time I had a boy in my class with autism. There were ABA therapists that would come help with different activities while working on behavior goals. I was so encouraged with how they handled and provided him care that I looked into ABA as a potential career.
I began my path as an RBT at a local autism center 2 and a half years ago and am so thankful for the knowledge that I gained. I started working at Keystone in May of this year. I immediately saw the care and intentionality provided to the families and therapists in a way that I had never seen before! I am so encouraged to find such an amazing company. My hope is that one day I will be able to start an autism center overseas where, in some countries, having a child with any kind of disability is considered a shame. I want to bless others while showing them what a blessing it is to have a child who views and experiences the world in such an amazing way.
Sophie is yet another therapist lifting the bar ever higher at Keystone Achievements. Her relentlessly cheerful and positive outlook coupled with an incredibly compassionate heart to complete a phenomenal therapist and team-mate. Sophie's catch phrase might as well be "I want to work with him/her" because every student that comes through the door she requests to be on their team. There's no one in this field with a bigger heart.
