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 was introduced to the field of ABA at the age of 10 when my cousin was diagnosed with Autism. I decided then that I wanted to teach children with special needs. I majored in psychology in my undergraduate studies and worked with two clients with autism. I then completed my master’s degree at Florida State University (Go ‘Noles!) and I am finishing a PhD in behavior analysis through Western New England University.

Education

M.S. in Applied Behavior Analysis, Florida State University, 2010

Philosophy of Care

First and foremost, I love providing applied behavior analytic services to individuals with autism because it hits close to home. I have been able to watch my cousins with autism learn and grow over the years, but I’ve also had to watch how hard my aunt and uncle fought for quality services. I believe in thoroughly assessing the client to develop an individualized program that focuses on functional skills that will maintain over time. I strive to provide quality services on a daily basis.

I began my degree shortly after starting work at Trumpet Behavioral Health. From the first few days at Trumpet, I began learning about autism and Applied Behavior Analysis, and this has not yet slowed. I look forward to every day at Trumpet to see the changes in client’s behaviors and to learn new things!

Philosophy of Care

I love providing therapy to children with autism because this is a field in which you can truly make a difference, and you can see the difference that is being made from day to day. Not only that, but the changes that are being made are done using positive reinforcement!

I received my B.S. in Elementary Education in 1993 and special education certification in 1997. I began my teaching career as a 6th grade teacher in an inclusion setting at a middle school in Indianapolis. Upon relocation to Arizona in 1999, I taught in a variety of self-contained and inclusive middle school settings and worked with students who had a variety of disabilities. In 2007, I started working in an elementary school in the northeast valley; which is where I began focusing on educating young children with autism. I received my M.Ed. in Special Education in 2012 and BCBA certification in 2014.

Philosophy of Care

In my most recent teaching position, a little boy with autism grabbed my heart and a new passion was born! I was determined to educate these kiddos with their typical peers as much as possible. Because I worked in a very small school district, programming options were limited. Our children with autism often had difficulty transitioning from the lower elementary to the upper elementary school and were being placed in special day schools around the valley. I wanted an opportunity to develop programs and educate these children within their community; which is why I pursued my advanced degree and BCBA certification.

I enjoy school consulting, educating families on special education law & advocacy, and connecting families to resources. My professional presentations in the school setting include data collection, functional behavior assessments and graphing. In the clinical setting, I have presented on special education law & advocacy.
