Why did you choose to pursue a career in ABA?
My daughter was diagnosed with autism in 2012. She had begun to receive behavior therapy shortly after diagnosis and she made really good progress. My family made a decision to switch behavior therapy companies six months after diagnosis and the new company utilized VB-MAPP (verbal behavior milestones assessment and placement program). My daughter’s growth in every area exploded. I observed her new behavior team daily. I drove my daughter to social skills classes and did everything the behavior team suggested. I was fascinated with what I would describe back then as the “magic” they were performing with my daughter. Deep down, I knew I wanted to be part of this “magic” in helping children function that could ultimately provide them a better life.
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about helping people and making a difference. I get great joy out of being able to use a lifetime of experiences combined with my education in behavior analysis in helping a variety of children.
