What drove you to the BCBA profession?

 I was driven to the BCBA profession when I was completing my undergraduate degree. I started working in the field as a BT and loved working with clients and their families. It has been a privilege working with clients to help them find their voice, in whatever way that may look for them, and I can’t wait to see myself continue to grow in this field!

 How do you balance your career and family?

 Balancing being a BCBA and family is an important part of my career because you need a healthy balance to serve clients best. To do this I make sure to block out specific time on my schedule ahead of time to spend time with family, and ensuring I’m still on track to provide the support they need!

 How has Golden Care helped you in your career development?

 Golden care has helped me in my career development by always showing support in situations that need navigating. I have a team of people at Golden Care that I can reach out to that are so quick to respond with support.

 What advice do you have for prospective Golden Care candidates?

 Perspective Golden Care candidates should expect a supportive team and a flexible environment to help you grow in the field!

 What do you find the most challenging in your work as a BCBA?

 The most challenging part of being a BCBA is learning and navigating any new behaviors with the family and team. Each behavior looks different with every client, so collaborating with the family to find a practical solution for them is best!

 What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?

 Some of the best advice I’ve been given in the field is that flowers can’t bloom in the dark. Meaning that we can’t help manage behaviors if we don’t see them, so it’s always best to see our clients in the most natural environment!

 What is your proudest moment at Golden Care/ in your work as a BCBA?

 One of my proudest moments at Golden Care is receiving this award! I know Golden Care has a ton of great BCBA’s so I’m proud of being recognized!

 What does the day to day of your job look like?

 I always check my schedule first to see what I have set up for the day. I usually have a mix of treatment planning, direct supervision of clients, and report writing. Planning my schedule ahead of time is key to ensuring I can support all my clients!

 What’s the one thing you’d tell your younger self? 

 I would tell my younger self to prioritize time for myself in the midst of work and education to make sure I can be my best self for clients!
