A little bit about me...I began my professional career as a certified Montessori teacher. I left my teaching career to return to graduate school while working with a non-profit providing ABA services to children. After obtaining my masters degree in Special Education, I began taking ABA coursework through the Florida Institute of Technology. I completed my supervised experience providing ABA therapy in both home and classroom settings. Upon successful completion of my board exam, I started a small business to continue to provide services to the autism community. I enjoy creating individualized programs tailored to meet each client's specific needs. My work is truly a labor of love and each day brings a smile to my face as I strive to improve the quality of life for those diagnosed with ASD and their caretakers.
