Hopebridge’s rapid expansion is a product of Dennis’s deep experience and passion for helping companies build high performing teams and systems to navigate through dynamic growth.

Dennis’ passion for helping those in need and advancing clinical standards for autism therapy is evident through his project leadership and collaboration with the International Consortium for Health Outcome Measures (ICHOM). The project with ICHOM will leverage clinical data from Hopebridge and other leading Autism Therapy Providers to balance a comprehensive view of measurements for evaluating healthcare outcomes for children with autism spectrum disorders.
