Lighthouse Autism Center is starting a new initiative highlighting the amazing employees we have working at our centers. Our Staff Spotlight will feature employees across all different centers in a variety of positions. This is an opportunity for our community to get to know the people who work so hard every day to deliver the best aba therapy to the kids and families we serve.

Meet Autumn. Autumn is a Senior Therapist at our Mishawaka location. Autumn has worked at Lighthouse for two years and began her Lighthouse journey as an RBT before being promoted to a Senior Therapist As a Senior Therapist she works closely with BCBA’s to implement behavior programs for Lighthouse kiddos.

Tell us about why you applied for a position with Lighthouse.

“After graduating with my B.A. in Sociology and Minor in Psychology from Indiana University, I was a stay-at-home mom for a few years and wanted to find a job where I could be able to continue working with kids and making a difference.”

Tell us about the team you work with.

“I have made some of my best friends while working at Lighthouse. Over the course of these two years, I’ve developed and grown friendships that I believe will last a lifetime. A couple of my co-workers and I even created a Book Club together (shout out to Alex, Veronica, and Ale), and I’ve made a lot more memories with co-workers that I consider to be great friends now!”

What is your favorite memory from your time at Lighthouse?

“There was one kiddo in particular that I had a very special bond with – I always looked forward to coming in to work and working with her, or just hearing her in the hallway talking up a storm. I think what I enjoy the most is that I truly love ALL of the kiddos that I work with! They are WONDERFUL!! Watching them grow and learn and develop their skills is truly an honor.

How would you describe your Lighthouse experience?

“I have loved working at Lighthouse! The 28th of February will be 2 years that I’ve been at Lighthouse and throughout my 2 years, I’ve worked at the Park Place, Granger and Edison locations, and I loved working at each one. I’ve learned so much about myself and I’ve developed such amazing friendships along the way. I’ve been able to learn from amazing people at each location. I feel immensely blessed to be working at Lighthouse.”

Autumn is currently working towards her Master’s degree in ABA at Ball State University. When not working with Lighthouse kiddos, Autumn enjoys spending time with her husband and two daughters.
