Excellence is derived from expertise. At QLI, our leaders exemplify the standards of excellence for the entire organization. Accomplished experts in each of their respective fields, the members of our executive, clinical, and residential leadership teams contribute decades of experience to our mission. Their knowledge shapes our programs, and allows our services to be of the highest possible quality.

But QLI’s culture defines our prolonged success. And that culture begins with our leadership team. On one hand, they mentor our staff and create a continually rewarding work environment. On the other, they work directly with our clients and our clients’ loved ones, and understand each client’s individualized needs as a result of a hands-on approach, ultimately ensuring QLI continues to provide industry-leading specialized care.
