My Story

I have always had a passion for working with children and that has informed my career choices every step of the way. During my undergrad, I focused on developing theatre designed for individuals with Autism to both perform in and enjoy from the audience. After graduating, I spent time as a teacher in an inclusive classroom. While I really enjoyed my time as a classroom teacher, I found myself missing the opportunity to work one-on-one or in small groups with kids. This is what drew me to become an RBT. Being in this field has allowed me to combine my passions and creativity to meet kids where they are and help them grow to their full potential.

My Blue Bird Day

I was drawn to Blue Bird Day because of their multidisciplinary approach. I am so proud to be part of a large team that is working together to be able to meet so many needs all under one roof.

My Blue Bird Day Goals

  1. My professional goals are to continue growing and gaining experience in my current position as an RBT and to return to school within the next year to earn my master’s degree and become a BCBA.
