Meet Our Team


Laura Williams


Laura has come full circle since spending childhood summers in the Blue Ridge mountains. Having lived mostly in Florida, she raised her 2 boys and worked in the Business Office at American Heritage School in Delray Beach. She has had many interesting jobs, and working with the team at St Gerard House is high on her list of favorites!


Sadie Whiting, RBT


Sadie is from Baltimore, Maryland and moved to Hendersonville a year ago. She graduated from Towson University with a Bachelors in Human Services, with a focus on Children & Youth. Sadie spent all four years of college volunteering with adults that have Autism by creating reading programs to increase literacy in the inner city and transportation navigation programs for adults to increase independence. She strongly feels that every person is so special and that their potential is limitless, which is why she's fascinated by ABA. Sadie is eager to learn and feels so fortunate to work at St. Gerard House, surrounded by people that have the biggest hearts! In her spare time Sadie is a doula, and enjoys yoga, hiking, and snuggling with her son!


Tony Wing RBT

Therapy Team Lead

Tony is a local from Asheville and attended Haw Creek, Reynolds, and later graduated from UNCA with a BA in Psychology. After high school, he decided not to pursue college right away and spent years traveling the world, meeting individuals and gaining perspective on the world around as well as within him. Tony taught English throughout Asia and has done missions work in indigenous villages in the Amazon Rain Forest. At the age of 25, he moved back to Asheville to pursue a K-6 teaching license at UNCA. During college, Tony started working with an individual with Autism and discovered ABA as well as his passion for this therapy. He immediately changed his major to Psychology and began intensively studying ABA literature. He has provided ABA services in South Carolina, Vermont, and western North Carolina including services in the home, job coaching, clinics, community outreach programs, and private schools. His desire to give back to western North Carolina is why he chose to join the St. Gerard team. When Tony is not working he loves to travel, work in his garden, and go on hikes with his dog, Sadie. A fun fact about Tony is that he is an identical twin.
