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!

I began working with children with autism and developmental disabilities during an internship for my undergraduate degree. During this internship, I was introduced to behavior analysis and decided to pursue a master’s degree in behavior analysis. At Western Michigan University, I gained clinical experience working with a variety of clients. I was also able to gain experience providing therapy in a variety of settings including in a school, center, and in-home. I am excited to continue my knowledge and experience in the field as part of the Trumpet Team!

Philosophy of Care

During my internship at Grand Valley State, I fell in love with the field of behavior analysis and providing therapy to children with autism. I have seen the powerful effects of behavior analysis and believe that every individual can learn and grow through ABA.
