Courtney received a degree in Psychology from Western Michigan University in 2007. That same year, she began working at the HOPE Center for Beaumont Health's Ted Lindsay Foundation where she gained experience in several roles including direct line therapist (both in clinic and home settings), parent/staff trainer, group leader, senior classroom supervisor, and CARE program assistant.
She received her Master’s Degree in Behavior Analysis (with an emphasis on autism) in 2015 and continued to work for the HOPE Center as a Behavior Analyst and consultant.
Over the years, Courtney has developed a special interest in designing and implementing behavior plans for food refusal and toileting. She has also worked with several teachers and districts to help integrate ABA into the school environment and help ensure a positive transition for children with autism into a full-day school schedule.
Courtney left her HOPE Center family in 2018 to assist in creating Bluestone Children’s Center with the goal to expand the availability of quality treatment for children diagnosed with autism.
Amy graduated from Oakland University with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a minor in health. She has had interest in working with developmentally delayed children most of her life, as she has 2 family members affected by autism.
She began her journey working for TTI (Training and Treatment Innovation) as part of the community support staff in 2006. She then took a position as a direct line therapist at the Ted Lindsay Foundation HOPE Center in 2007 while simultaneously working as a paraprofessional in the Grand Blanc school district until 2009.
Since her initial employment, Amy has gained experience as a direct line therapist, parent/staff trainer, classroom supervisor, and program assistant.
Amy left her HOPE Center family in 2018 to help create Bluestone Children’s Center with an effort to further expand the availability of treatment for families beginning their journey.
Amy currently resides in Grosse Ile with her husband, daughter, and son.
Kelly earned a bachelor degree in 2004 from Michigan State University with an early focus in Special Education and later graduating with a degree in Business Management.
While living overseas with her husband, Brock, Kelly gained the certification to teach English as a Second Language (ESL) and taught English in South Korea to kindergarten-middle school for several years. Kelly also gave birth to their first child while living overseas and observed her own young daughter grow up in a country with strong language barriers and their own set of unique cultural norms. She quickly learned how important community support is in learning and development, and tried to never take for granted the supports that were given to assist her daughter through this time.
Kelly now resides in Plymouth with her husband, son, and daughter. She is excited to personally help families within the community in any way possible!
Brock grew up in New Hamburg, Ontario and went on to play hockey at Michigan State University where he earned his Bachelor Degree in Organizational Communications. From there he met his wife Kelly and they began following his hockey career internationally, living in Switzerland, Germany and South Korea.
Throughout many years of hard work, success and dedication Brock earned his South Korean citizenship and was recognized as the first ever North American to represent Korea’s National Team.
He went on to participate in the very recent 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games for South Korea Men’s Hockey.
Brock grew up watching his older
sister overcome challenges from her own struggles with mental health. He has also learned the true meaning of ‘hope’ and ‘perseverance’ after witnessing his own mother recover from a severe traumatic brain injury. Throughout these times, Brock was given tremendous amounts of support from his team and the communities in which he resided. After 15 years of professional hockey, Brock and his family have settled back into Plymouth, Michigan and are ready to give back to the community and help support other families as they start their own journey of healing.
