My Story

My high school required students to complete a 40-hour service project before graduation. I found myself volunteering at a special recreation and have loved working with children, especially children with autism, ever since!  After completing schooling in California and London, I began working in ABA doing in-home therapy with children and adolescents with autism. After working as a behavior technician and RBT for 5 years, I decided to go back to Pepperdine in October of 201and recently completed my master’s in behavior psychology. 

My Blue Bird Day

I love being able to focus on play-based learning strategies and incorporate reinforcement and motivation into a variety of learning environments from individual sessions to small group environments. 

My Blue Bird Day Goals

  1. I just finished my master’s in Behavioral Psychology and hope to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst in late 2020.
