M.Ed, BCBA, LABA
It has been a lifelong dream of mine to contribute to the world and individuals with special needs. After volunteering with various special needs organizations in high school, I decided to pursue my dream. I enrolled in Endicott College to receive a bachelors degree in Education. From there, I discovered the world of Applied Behavior Analysis. I went on to attain my masters degree in Applied Behavior Analysis. Throughout my experience, I realized that the current state of transition services needed to be enhanced in order to promote successful adulthood outcomes. In my last year of my studies I completed a thesis on how I believe transition services should be executed in order to achieve success. Finding this success is what I strive to achieve with each individual I have the honor of working with.
Outside of my career I am a happy mother who enjoys skiing, biking, and family time.
M.S, BCBA, LABA
Since graduating college I have worked with children as young as 3 and young adults as old as 22 with special needs. I began my career in this field at a private school for kids with ASD. Since receiving my BCBA and LABA I have moved over to working in public schools districts as well as home-based services. My favorite thing about my jobs has been having the opportunity to help my clients reach their full potential. Whether it’s getting a first job, learning to shop for groceries, or learning a new hobby, these are the moments that make me proud to work with such amazing young people. I am also a proud owner of a rescue dog, and I enjoy running, making music, and spending time with family.
I began my career working with children and adults diagnosed with ASD six years ago when working as a support/program assistant during my Associate degree in Human Services. During the years I was completing my bachelor’s in Psychology with a concentration in Applied Behavior Analysis, I worked as Behavior Technician for New England ABA. I am currently completing a Master of Science in Applied Behavior Analysis & Autism Studies from UMass Lowell. I thoroughly enjoy working on functional living skills, functional communication, and connecting with families to make a difference in clients’ lives. Outside of ABA, I enjoy spending time with my family and my two beagles, and I love to travel back home to spend time with my parents.
