I attended Western Michigan University as an undergraduate. There I participated in a practicum in which I worked one-on-one providing intensive behavior therapy in a public preschool for children with autism. Subsequent to receiving my BS in psychology at WMU in 2003, I accepted a position with Applied Behavior Consultants in Duarte, California. There I was trained in assessment, supervision, PECS, parent-training, and clinical skills. Clients received home and school-based services through the Regional Centers and school districts of California. During this time I also became a Board Certified Associate Behavior Analyst (2007). After a brief experiment in teaching, I returned to ABA in 2009 at ACES in Orange County, CA. I began supervising for various ACES locations, including Colorado Springs, CO, and Tacoma, WA. After relocating to their Colorado office, I remained with ACES until I became interested in working independently. Since 2012 I have preferred independent consulting to supervising for a large company, and currently contract for Behavior and Learning Group, LLC. I graduated with my MEd in special education and ABA from Arizona State University in 2015. Subsequently I became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) in November, 2015. I currently work with Behavior and Learning Group as an independent behavior consultant and as a provider for TriCare/United, Medicaid, and Anthem Blue Cross in Colorado Springs, CO.
