Cassie Schneider, COO   Originally from New Hampshire, Cassie has worked with individuals with special needs for close to 10 years through employment and volunteer opportunities. She attended college with the intent of becoming a Special Education Teacher, however, after spending many hours shadowing in multiple school districts she realized that she wanted to help these individuals outside of the school setting. In New Hampshire, companies similar to ABLE are very difficult to come across due to the lack of state funding. Cassie moved to Wisconsin to work for ABLE in September of 2010. Since then, she has also provided services for up to 5 individuals at once in her licensed Adult Family Home and Foster Home. Now with a growing family, she limits her home services to one adult with severe Autism who has since become a part of the family.
