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

“I’m very passionate about inclusion and love working with kiddos on the spectrum! I drove past Lighthouse every day on my way to work at another autism center and had heard so many amazing things about the company – which I can now confirm are all true! One day I just decided to apply and have not regretted the decision once!”

“Every single one of the ladies I work with is absolutely amazing! The love for the kids is astounding, and they’re always so helpful! It’s amazing to be part of the Lighthouse family!”

What is your favorite memory from your time at Lighthouse?

“My favorite memory at Lighthouse was definitely our Christmas party with the kiddos! Seeing their faces light up with joy as Santa walked in and just getting to have fun with them was one of the most amazing things! I’m looking forward to experiencing it again this Christmas!”

How would you describe your Lighthouse experience?

My experience at Lighthouse has been incredible! It’s so rewarding to grow closer to the kids and watch them progress! Not only that, but every LAC staff member I’ve encountered has been very friendly and always so helpful! I am truly blessed to be a part of Lighthouse Autism Center!

When Maddie isn’t working, she enjoys spending time with her fiancé, chocolate lab, Hershey, and singing.
