My Bio


A bit about me:


 
I'm a Board Certified Behavior Analyst from Atlanta, GA, and I LOVE my job!



 I have been providing ABA therapy services to young children with Autism since the summer of 2003. My career in ABA began when I stumbled upon a flyer on my college campus for what I thought was a babysitting opportunity. The job turned out to be an entry level ABA Therapist position working with an adorable little boy with Autism. The more I learned about Autism, the more I wanted to continue learning.


From my early days of working as a line therapist in a rural area, I am now an author and have the privilege of providing consultation and supervision services to amazing families and teachers all over the world. I also conduct staff trainings, administer assessments, and create behavioral interventions for individuals with Autism. 

Whats next? Well, my plan is to open an early intervention center for young children with Autism. My main career interest lies in working with recently diagnosed children and getting them ready to learn, and helping transition them into inclusive classroom environments where they can thrive.

A dissatisfaction with arrogant professionals who talk over the heads of families led me to a passion for effective parent training. Parent training/coaching is my #1 favorite part of my job. I enjoy taking complicated concepts and making them easy for anyone to understand, and helping to equip parents with effective tools of behavior change.

That's what my blog is all about: sharing ABA in a way that is non-intimidating and simple to grasp.
