In her personal time, there is nothing she loves more than spending quiet time at home with her beautiful German Shepherd, Nina. Her sisters, parents and all of her extended family have always been an important part of her life. Family parties and vacations are where you will find her during most weekends and holidays.

She has dedicated her professional career to building strategies that bring families into the therapeutic environment for children with autism. Education and Training are her passions and she believes these are the cornerstones of successful ABA programs.  She guided by her love for ABA and has spent years building both her ABA agency, BCBA Services for Autism, and Autism Therapy Career College into wholehearted organizations, characterized by complete sincerity and commitment to their customers. We are here to help you. Please feel free to reach out to us directly if you have any questions or need guidance.
