What I Do To De-stress In My Free Time

When I'm not working, you can find me hiking, running, or playing tennis. No matter what I'm doing, my young son is not far behind me in his carrier or running stroller.

My Work Style

I am committed to providing the best quality services and outcomes to each and every family that I serve. I believe in "going slow to go fast" by taking time to get to know each learner and family, investing in a relationship that is based on mutual respect, trust, and rapport. I work with families to set individualized, meaningful goals that focus on each member leading a more independent, happier life. As a behavior analyst, I embrace the power of data driven instruction. I look forward to celebrating successes and am able to pivot when data show us a change would be beneficial.

Why I Became a BCBA

After working with students with autism within the public school setting, I realized that I was missing the skills needed to truly teach my learners what they needed to be the most successful inside and outside of the classroom. Becoming a BCBA allowed me to learn what I needed so I could better assess, teach, and monitor progress for all learners, regardless of ability of disability.

What Previous Clients Would Say About Me

Previous learners would likely say that I make learning "stick" through play and motivating activities. I view building relationships with clients and families as an investment in therapy and therapeutic outcomes.

What I Love Most About What I Do

I consider working with learners and their families a privilege. I love building relationships with clients and their loved ones.

Most Challenging Professional Moment

I find it challenging when all stakeholders aren't aligned in goals or "bought in" to therapy.

Most Rewarding Professional Moment

There is nothing like hearing a learner speak (vocally or non-vocally) for the first time! I love teaching learners the power of their voice.
