Meet the Owners!
Hello and welcome! We are Nicole and Kahreem, and we are the owners of We Rock the Spectrum – Mount Laurel.
Nicole is the proud parent of Landon and London, police wife to Bryan, and a licensed clinical social worker. Nicole and Bryan had Landon in 2013 and had London exactly 1 year later. London was diagnosed with autism at 18 months and is non-verbal. After this diagnosis, Nicole immediately began attending classes, courses and certifications on autism so that she could best equip herself for her new normal. Her career became centered around autism and helping newly diagnosed families adapt to change and connecting them to new resources and services. As Nicole and her family sought out places for recreation and fun, they came across WRTS – Mount Laurel. They immediately felt comfortable, safe, and welcomed. It was at the gym where Nicole would meet her new business partner, Kahreem.
Kahreem Cunningham is the proud father of Aubrey, owns two childcare centers, and has been working in human services for over 12 years. He graduated from Pierce College, where he earned his undergraduate degree, and he is currently enrolled in an MBA program at Rutgers University. His passion for working in his field has grown over the years, as he finds it rewarding and has led him to meet amazing autism families. Kahreem’s journey at the gym was a but different because Aubrey is not on the autism spectrum. However, once he met the McDaniel’s and brought Aubrey, she didn’t want to leave and asked to go back every day. He feels blessed to be given the opportunity to become an owner.
Both Nicole and Kahreem are incredibly excited to continue on this journey of inclusion for their community and making a difference in the lives of children of ALL abilities!
