What did you do before you joined us?

I was working as a Behavioural Therapist with a number of children

Why did you decide to pursue a career in Applied Behaviour Analysis?

I really like working with children, and believe that I can help them even more through planning and writing individualised programs to suit their needs. I chose to pursue a career in Behaviour Analysis so that I can learn more about how to help people on the autism spectrum reach their full potential.

What is your role here? What would a typical day look like for you?

I am a Senior RBT at Aspire and have recently started training as a supervisor which widens my responsibilities to include planning and writing client programs. I love the new challenges that this training presents me every day.

On most days I work with children on a one to one basis, but I am also very busy planning and designing their programs. There is always a lot of preparation to be done before sessions that is an important part of what I do.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

The most rewarding part of my job is my direct involvement with children, I got immense enjoyment out of seeing their progress and helping them learn.  My job makes me very happy!

What do you like to do in your spare time? Do you have any interests/hobbies?

I love to travel! I spend a lot of my spare time researching and planning trips to places I have never been to. For my next travel installment I would love to go to Switzerland on a romantic trip with my husband.
