My Story

I began my internship at Blue Bird Day to follow a path of physical therapy in pediatrics. A month into the internship, I fell in love with ABA and working with children on the ASD spectrum. It is incredibly rewarding to see a child learn a skill and watch them progress and master goals. 

My Blue Bird Day

I enjoy working with such a diverse group of children and a diverse group of therapists. So much knowledge is gained from therapists of different concentrations by our collaborative therapy approach. This allows us to have a well-rounded approach when supplying services. 

My Blue Bird Day Goals

  1. I will be continuing my education and earn my master’s degree in Applied Behavior Analysis to become a BCBA.
