My interest and experiences in behavior analysis started 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.

Working with children with autism and their families across the past 10 years has been the most fulfilling part of my life. I started in this field as a paraeducator and instantly fell in love because I could see the tremendous impact I was making in each child’s life every day. That experience inspired me to pursue my certification as a behavior analyst in order to expand the extent of my impact on the field. I began as a special education teacher in Washington State, and then moved into the private sector as a clinician after moving to Arizona. My goal every day is to improve the lives of individuals with autism and their families through effective, comprehensive programming to address their needs.

I began my career in behavior analysis at the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire, where I learned the value of discreet trial training.  I have worked with children with Autism in a clinic, school, and home setting. I am excited for the new opportunities that Trumpet Behavioral Health will bring me and to continue to expand my experience in this field.

Philosophy of Care

One of my most memorable experiences was teaching functional communication to a young child for the first time. It was amazing to see how the skills we taught the child benefited both the client and the client’s family. Providing therapy to children with Autism is my passion because I find it so rewarding to see all of the possibilities that come from the skills learned in therapy.
