My interest and experiences in behavior analysis stated as an undergrad serving individuals with intellectual impairment and autism.  As a graduate student at University of the Pacific I began working with individuals across the life span.  As a Ph.D. student at Western Michigan I began publishing research in the areas of preference assessment, autism and gerontology.  I have conducted numerous presentations at international, national and local conferences.  I have been practicing clinically in Canada and the United States.  Additionally, I have been a guest editor for several ABA journals as well as contributed to book chapters in the area of behavior analysis.

Philosophy of Care

I have always had a passion for working with individuals with special needs.  As I attended college and graduate school I became increasingly intrested in the area of behavior analysis.  I feel that this disipline is one that allows me to be effective in assisting individuals in reaching their full potential and helping them to live healthy, happy, functional lives.  I see each client as unique and individual and enjoy learning about their specific skills and needs as we work together to achieve their outcomes.

I love providing therapy to children with autism because seeing the impact that the change in behavior has on the family is very rewarding. I began my degree after interning at a school for children with autism. During my internship I learned the basic principles of behavior analysis and fell in love with the field. After graduating from college I decided to pursue a masters in ABA. I attended Florida Institute of Technology where I got hands on experience working in a state of the art autism clinic. In addition to time spent in the clinic I was part of organizing a social skills group for kids ages 5-14. I also was involved in a federally funded grant that provided 10-weeks worth of parent training classes. I completed my masters thesis on sibling training. While running my thesis I was able to gain experience working in-home with the families. I am very thrilled to be part of the Trumpet team!
