Operations Team


Cornerstone’s Operations Team

Cornerstone’s Operations Team works each day to ensure that our clients are safe, comfortable, and fully capable of focusing on their treatment. Each member of our operations team is professional and caring, always putting our clients’ needs first.

Veronica Frash

Director of Virtual IOP

Veronica began her recovery journey in 2012. After moving down to the valley, her career path changed from hospitality to healthcare. Veronica is driven to help those in recovery with love and compassion built from the recovery community and her hospitality upbringing. In her role as director of Virtual IOP, her goal is to bridge the gap of addiction care access in the rural areas of Arizona. 

Dane Perikly

Director of Virtual Services

Growing up in Phoenix, Dane began his recovery journey in 2016 and moved into the treatment field in late 2017, working as a call representative. Since then, he has worked in various roles at an outpatient level, both in client care and business, before landing in operations with Cornerstone in 2020. With his belief that peace comes from within, he hopes to use his skill set to provide a structured and calm space to give those struggling with substance abuse the ability to grow and learn.

Dayna Kwon

Director of Clinical Services

Dayna thought she was coming to Arizona for just 30 days of treatment in April 2018 and has built her new life here. Dayna has been working in the recovery field since 2019, providing sober living and aftercare for those struggling with substance use disorders. She came onboard with Cornerstone in 2021, hoping to learn and grow with us while being a part of making a difference in people’s lives.

Tom Higgins

Director of Client Services

Tom grew up in Central New York but traded snow for sunshine and moved to Scottsdale, AZ in 2017. After finding Cornerstone in April 2019 and beginning a life of recovery for himself, Tom has worked hard to help others discover their pathway to recovery. Starting in October 2020, Tom became the leader of navigation, later transitioning to Director of Client Services.
