Meet Missy and Chris — the team transforming support for parents of children with autism.

What is Beaming Health?

Beaming Health provides personalized support to parents who have children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Parents who have children with special healthcare needs are 26% more likely to develop depression than other parents. We hope to alleviate the stress these parents face by helping them find the right care providers for their children, uncover all of the possible resources to pay for their child’s care, and bring a sense of community and fun back into their lives.

What’s next for your team?

We launched our free pilot ( in March! We’re focused on collecting feedback around which of our offerings is the most compelling and how we can best deliver information. We’re hoping to raise a Seed round in early summer.

What do you have and what are you looking for?

We’re both 2nd-year MBA students and we’re actively looking for a CTO. Additionally, if anyone has a friend or family member who has a child with ASD, we’d love for them to join our pilot! Contact us at

Fun Fact!

Missy used to teach dogs how to surf and Chris has won a cornhole league with his twin brother five years in a row.
