Kori Lester
Kori Lester My name is Kori Lester; I live in Knightdale, NC with my husband and two children ages 14 and 4. I have a BSW in Social Work from Meredith College. I have always known I wanted to work with young children and their families and I have done so for over 20 years. I worked for the Children’s Developmental Services Agency for almost 10 years and have worked in Early Intervention for almost 12 years. I believe Early Intervention is very important. It has been proven that the earlier a child receives assistance with learning when needed the better the outcome later on. I believe in empowering the family and giving them the tools they need to help their child developmental. Parents are their child’s most important teacher and advocate, Parent’s know their child better than anyone. I have experience working with children with disabilities such as autism, down syndrome, speech delays, and fine motor delays just to name a few. I am excited to meet you and work with your family.
