About STARS

Our success – people we employ.
STARS brings you the very best team for your child and family.

Introduction

Kristie and Valerie have big hearts when it comes to helping others, especially children. The formation of STARS happened because of this desire to help others and for their love of Early Intervention. There has been a lot of hard work and dedication put into building STARS from the ground up. Kristie and Valerie agree that it has not been an easy process, but do believe that it has certainly been worth it. The future of STARS remains bright and what started out as a blank canvas continues to transform into a beautiful masterpiece. They look forward to partnering with you as they continue their journey in the community.
