About Me

I have been working in the field of behavior analysis since 2002 and have been a Board Certified Behavior Analyst since 2004. Most of my career has been applied in school based settings with individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders, however, I have also provided consultation in home and community based settings as well as provided training to autism based organizations and public schools.

I have also had the opportunity to develop and conduct several research projects and have presented more than 35 times at over 25 different local and national conferences. My areas of research include stimulus equivalence, verbal behavior, organizational behavior management, and supervision.

I have served multiple roles within the Behavior Analysis Department at Simmons University including Individual Mentor/Supervisor, Adjunct Faculty and am currently an Associate Professor of Practice in the [email protected] Program.
