I started working in the field of Special Education in high school as a summer job in an integrated preschool program and as an in-home paraprofessional. I absolutely fell in love with the field and left for college planning to head off to medical school and someday circle back in some way to work with young children with a variety of developmental disabilities. I earned my B.S from Quinnipiac University in Biomedical Science in 2011 and decided to take a year off from school to apply to medical school and figure out my next steps. During this time, I took a job in an out of district placement school for children with severe behavior concerns and became obsessed with Behavior Analysis. Instead of applying to medical school, I moved up to Boston to take a job as a behavior technician and pursue a Master’s Degree in Behavior Science. I earned my M.S. in Applied Behavior Analysis from Simmons College in 2014 and passed the board to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. I have now been a BCBA for 7 years and worked in the field in a variety of roles for over 15 years. I have worked in schools, homes, clinics, and residential settings with children and adults with a wide range of diagnoses. My experience includes treating clients with Autism and related developmental disorders, Trauma/Reactive Attachment Disorder, ADD/ADHD, TBI, and ODD. My personal areas of focus as a BCBA tend to be parent training, functional skills, collaborating across disciplines, and skill generalization. I believe in keeping programming simple and working in the natural environment as much as possible to facilitate functional progress for my clients.
