• Tell us a bit about your job as a BCBA.  I have the opportunity to work with clients from ages 20 months to 12 years old, their behavior technicians, and families. I create programs and change them based on their needs and data that is being collected by the behavior technicians.
  • What drove you to the BCBA profession?  I was in Special Education for 13 years before changing careers. One of my favorite parts of being a teacher was working with my students with challenging behaviors. My undergrad and the district I worked for used and taught ABA strategies and I knew this was something I wanted to learn more about.
  • How do you balance your career and family? I work part time. This helps me to have a home and work balance that I love. I also manage my schedule in a way that I can make sure I am fully working when working and fully at home when I am at home with my two children.
