From Colombia originally.
I am from Bogota, Colombia. I have been in the USA for 30 years. Since I came to the USA, I have not stopped studying and continue pursuing my goals. I was able to finish a degree of Applied Behavioral Sciences from Nova University and from there I continued to work, with the goal to become a BCBA one day. In turn, I earned my certificate as a BCBA 10 years ago.
I worked 18 years for a non-profit organization helping kids with a variety of conditions to be able to be stable and to learn new skills. I worked as an administrator of one of the facilities for over 10 years and before this I was able to be promoted in several positions until I became the administrator.
After I left this company which I worked for 18 years, I started working for Fresh Starts as a BCBA , starting the program and helping the owners to develop the ABA department for the company. I have the fortune of been able to still work for this wonderful company for the past 7 years. Lastly, I enjoy being part of each client’s and RBT’s growth throughout the years and witnessing the impact that ABA can have.
