My Story

Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to work with children. As I began my journey to become an occupational therapist, I started to work at an ABA company for extra experience and fell in love. The basic principles of behavior modification just made sense and I changed career paths. I enjoyed coming to work every day and seeing the progress the kids made in a structured, modified environment. I then earned my master’s in special education and became a BCBA in July of 2020. It is exciting to come into work every day and be around people working toward the same goal: improving the lives of children with Autism. I chose to become a BCBA to help children learn to live fuller lives and to teach others to do the same. I can’t imagine a career doing anything else.

My Blue Bird Day

I look forward to collaborating with a multidisciplinary team to provide the best therapeutic interventions for our kids and their families.
