Karrie has been wonderful and informative to all our needs and questions. She is wonderful with Payton and shows great care and concern. When she arrives she is ready and excited about the goals for the day. This is a very new first time experience in dealing with EI services, so Karrie has been fantastic in making sure we are comfortable as well as informed of everything that is taking place. So far it has been a great experience, and we are very pleased to continue this journey for our little one.

We are very grateful and Blessed to have Bright start along with Karrie to be part of this process.
