What I Do To De-stress In My Free Time

I love to be outdoors with my family in beautiful central Oregon. In the summer you can find us hiking, paddle boarding, running, or traveling and in the winter, we like to snowshoe and go tubing.

Why I Became a BCBA

As a special education teacher I was not seeing the changes I knew were possible for my students. I worked at a therapeutic special education school that served at-risk students whose complex needs prevented success in other settings. While working there I was introduced to ABA and immediately feel in love with it. I now combine my previous experience as an educator with my knowledge as a clinician to create positive change for children who are struggling.

What Previous Clients Would Say About Me

I am dedicated to seeing my clients succeed and I love being a part of a team. For my clients to be successful I know it takes a village and I am honored to be a part of that process. My former clients would also tell you that I am full of energy and ideas, I am always looking for new ways to engage the clients I work with.

What I Love Most About What I Do

I love when a parent tells me about new skills they have observed or when a client reaches a new milestone. Every step they make is one step closer to living their best life.

Most Challenging Professional Moment

When a client does not or can not make progress due to factors out of our control such as lack of available resources, side effects from medications, or other medical conditions.

Most Rewarding Professional Moment

When my first client graduated from ABA services!
