My Story

I have always known I wanted to work with children and studied early childhood learning in my undergraduate studies, thinking that I would find myself teaching in a classroom, only to come across the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) a few years later. I fell in love with the way that I am able to come alongside children and meet them where they are at while giving them tools to facilitate their growth. The ways that ABA can give children freedom and independence in life skills, academic skills, and emotional skills is what I am most passionate about. I decided to pursue a career in ABA so that I can help children become more indecent in their own lives.

My Blue Bird Day Goals

  1. My professional goals are to graduate with my Master’s degree, pass my board exam, and become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).
