  • Tell us a bit about your job as an ABA THERAPIST.   I experience working with special needs children throughout my 14 years of teaching.  A co-worker years ago while she was observing me work said “Ms. D, you could be an amazing Rbt”. There’s where everything started.  I decided to start as a part time after school hours, and here I am today, I stopped teaching and started ABA.
  • What drove you to the ABA Therapist profession?  I always had a passion for helping those in need.  The more I worked as an Rbt the more I fell in love with it.  My heart is just full of joy when I see one goal being accomplished.  It is very rewarding to know that on a daily basis you are making a positive in pact in a child’s life and their family.
  • How do you balance your career and family?  Working as an Rbt for GCT and a Developmental Specialist for Early Intervention,  being a single mother of 3 kids, could be challenging sometimes.  However, I try to stick to my schedule at work and when I am at home I make sure I spend quality time with my children.
  • How has Golden Care helped you in your career development? Through Golden care I met a beautiful soul, my current BCBA Heidi, she has been my teacher, my mentor.  Also, Jeffey who is no longer with GCT but I’ll always remember him by his kindness and humbleness.  Last but not least  the staff at GCT have been very helpful, flexible, and each one of those who I’ve been in contact with have shown professionalism, respect and kindness.
  • What advice do you have for prospective Golden Care candidates?  Be patient, be open to learning, and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
  • What do you find the most challenging in your work as an ABA Therapist?  The most challenging part is when I have to let go of a case.  It breaks my heart to see a mom asking me to please not leave them, sometimes with teary eyes. It makes me sad not being able to help all of those children in need because I am one person and there are so many of them.
  • What drew you to Golden Care originally? And how has Golden Care changed since?  Golden care gave me the opportunity to gain more experience.  From when I started the only thing that has changed has been a few of the staff members that had moved on.
  • What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?  One thing I would tell my youngest self is “I am proud of you, keep going”
