BIOGRAPHY

I have worked with children since I was 15-years-old, teaching music lessons in my spare time and leading the youth at my church. During my college years, I worked as an extended-school-day counselor and a part-time music teacher. After graduating from the University of Miami with a bachelor’s degree in communication, I decided to branch out and began what ended up being a very short career in marketing and public relations. Once I realized I longed to work with children once again, I began working at a small private school as a 3rd grade teacher. One of my students was on the autism spectrum and had an RBT with him in my classroom throughout the school day. This is when I was introduced to ABA and witnessed its positive effects on my student. I asked questions and began learning how to use ABA principles to improve the learning experience for the entire class. It was then that I decided to be a part-time RBT after school and eventually became a full-time RBT. Working as an RBT only encouraged a stronger love for ABA, prompting me to obtain my Master’s and finally, my BCBA certification!
