Her Heart: "I knew I wanted to work with children my whole life. I thought I wanted to work in a day care and then I discovered autism when I was 19. I soaked up all the information I could obtain on autism and ran with it. While it took me a while to discover exactly where I wanted to be, I feel that I am now complete as a BCBA. I love figuring out what works best for each child and their family. Im looking forward to working on any of the skills that will allow the children to grow to whatever they are meant to be."
