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.
I am currently earning my Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health counseling. I previously worked in home healthcare and have always loved working with children. I have been employed with Attain for 2 years and have fallen in love with the company and clients. Supporting clients through teaching styles designed uniquely for them to be successful in all areas of life is what draws me to ABA. Seeing client growth while working and playing together over time makes this job so rewarding and fun!
