We love Jackie. She has been great and is super easy to work with. Our son loves to see her and doesn’t even know he is learning because he is having so much fun! She has helped me come up with some ideas to handle situations with our son.
My children are clients of Bright Start, and we have been with them for about 15 years now.
I was just finishing an email exchange with Anna Pridgen that ended as it usually does, with something like, “Anna, what would I do without you?”
It really made me stop and reflect for a minute. Really, what would I do without my Anna??
God has put some amazing souls in our path as we journey down the road raising children on the spectrum. We’ve had some great therapists, teachers, service providers, and so on, but as we all know, there are always a few that rise to the top that make us wonder, what would we do without this person?
I don’t think I need to tell you how sweet, smart and funny Anna is. She always gets me through whatever crisis or situation I call on her to help with, but in a manner that feels like we’re not just clients, but really, part of a family. I know I can count on an instant reply from her whenever I reach out. Weekends, evenings, she’s always there. I’d swear sometimes we were the only family she was servicing! Lol. She really is amazing.
The most important thing though is how knowledge she is and how absolutely amazing she is at her job! I’m sure I don’t need to explain how incredibly challenging life can be at times for the families that you serve. Having a case manager that is exceptional at her job eases the frustration of having to deal with complex and complicated services, dealing with other agencies and their endless red tape and more, all of which can lead parents to just give up altogether in frustration and subsequently close doors to services that may otherwise enhance the lives of their children and their families. Anna Pridgen makes it all look easy! To say that we are grateful to her is the understatement of the year. In closing, I just wanted to express my gratitude and let you know what a difference Bright Start and your amazing staff has made in our lives over the past several years.
We were absolutely thrilled with our services through Bright Start. Both Kaitlyn and Cat were incredible advocates for our child and we can’t stress enough how much of a difference they made to our lives. They were creative with solutions, responsive to our needs and inquiries, and just incredible therapists. Thank you so much!
Cassie has been incredible. She has gone above and beyond to get fully on board with my child’s care plans, she’s been very helpful with getting more care started for him. She’s been very helpful with ideas to further his work with what we have at home… I could go on and on already. I have been thrilled to have Cassie as my child’s EI.
Jenna is absolutely fantastic! She is very professional and reliable. She is thorough and organized and always offers helpful suggestions and is very cheerful. She is wonderful with my child and kind to all my other children around us. I am very pleased with how she treats her job as she enjoys it and seems to really care for her clients. She is also wonderful at getting us set up with therapies and talking with different companies. I couldn’t be more pleased with Jenna.
She is on time.
She is polite.
She is very skilled with children.
She does what she says and follows through.
Megan has been a blessing to us, and our child loves her and gets so excited to see her! I have to say she has been amazing in everything with helping us achieve goals to being flexible about our crazy schedule currently with us buying and selling and doing 3 different moves. And she helps so much with reminding me about dates and appointments for my child. She is encouraging while making everything fun and then she’s helped us a ton too with us being first time parents if we have questions she so super helpful with giving us info and if she doesn’t have it she takes the time to research for us. We love her very much and can’t thank you guys enough for all the help and support your giving us to better our child in our time of need! And I have no doubt that with the help with Megan and the other therapists that he will meet his goals!
We love Mary Meyers. She works great with our family and has been awesome coordinating my child’s speech therapy. She has been very helpful in working with my child’s speech delay. We look forward to her visit every week. She has brought some great ideas to the table that I would not have thought of otherwise.
