M.A., BCBA Board Certified Behavior Analyst

“I love working with children with autism and neurodevelopmental disorders because every child has amazing potential and I love helping them uncover what they are capable of. I was the quiet and shy kid, often on the outskirts. There is nothing more rewarding to me than to watch kids who are struggling in any way grow and learn. Every day is a new and different experience and I love it.”
