I grew up in southern New Jersey. I started working in the field of behavioral health at age 16. I worked for a summer camp that had an inclusion program for children with autism. I enjoyed watching my camper’s reach new goals and progress. After high school, I went to Millersville University for social work where I obtained my BSW. Throughout college, worked in direct care and social services. I moved back to New Jersey and worked as a paraprofessional and substitute teacher for a school for individuals with special needs and severe behaviors. It was there I discovered ABA therapy and fell in love with the practice. In December 2021, I completed my Masters in ABA at Ball State University. I am currently working on my BCBA supervision to eventually become a BCBA. I am excited for my new career at PAT and to grow as a future BCBA.
