Certified behavior technician and professional advocate with over fourteen years of experience serving members of marginalized communities in diverse settings such as public-schools, private in-home therapy, group homes, clinical and community settings. Detail-oriented and highly organized multi-tasker. Extensive background working with individuals impacted by various intellectual and neurological disabilities. I have reached pediatric and school aged children that require behavioral intervention through ABA, on to teaching classes and job coaching adults with disabilities with added the experience in counseling adult offenders with a history of violent crimes. I build rapport quickly by engendering an empathetic and compassionate individualized approach to interpersonal communication and program implementation. Working alongside BCBA’s, the tools and techniques I employ allow me to work programs and interventions systematically addressing minor to severe challenging behaviors, with a focus on ensuring a safe space for measurable growth that in the ends allows for successful education and community integration to be possible for all clients I serve.
