Meet the Team
I have been a part of the Fort Collins community for over 20 years. I graduated with a Masters degree in Communication Disorders and later went on to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. Early in my career I found a passion for working with individuals with challenging behavior but realized I was lacking the knowledge I needed to help my client’s succeed. In my search for answers I attended a workshop on Verbal Behavior and that was my introduction to applied behavior analysis. This field provided me with the principles I felt I needed to help my client’s be successful. I feel the combination of Applied Behavior Analysis and Communication Disorders allow me to create a well-rounded, comprehensive program for you and your child.I have experience working in Community Re-Entry Programs, public schools, early intervention programs, private ABA companies and my own private practice.I am passionate about learning, teaching and supporting growth. I believe that together we can succeed!
I received my master’s degree in Special Education from Penn State University. I began working with children with varied developmental disorders in 2004 where I was introduced to Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). I worked 1:1 with clients and fell in love with the field and the children. I have experience working in a variety of settings including pubic schools, home-based services, and clinics with children of all ages. I am driven to support families and staff so that they can achieve their goals and live fuller lives.
I received my Masters degree in Applied Behavior Analysis from Florida State University and have been certified as a BCBA since August 2020. Previously, I have worked with children with selective mutism and children with prenatal exposure to drugs/alcohol in a clinical setting. I found a passion in working with children with developmental disabilities and challenging behavior when I worked as a counselor for children with ADHD at Florida International University. Applied Behavior Analysis quickly became a passion of mine when I saw my first client reach a major developmental milestone while having fun and enjoying the time spent with clinicians. I believe my varied experience allows me to connect with all clients and create individualized programs for your child and their needs.
