I am a native Texan who moved to our beautiful state of Utah in 2018, and I’ll never look back! I live here with my husband and our two rescue dogs. I have been working with children with mild/moderate special needs in different settings for over 10 years. I have a B.Sc in Special Education from the University of Oklahoma (Boomer!), and I am currently working on my M.Ed in Special Education with an ABA emphasis. I hope to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) after graduating. I have experience as a Special Education Teacher in public schools, as well as working in ABA therapy - delivering 1:1 therapy, coaching parents and families, developing programs, and training other therapists. My passion lies in training our teachers to deliver specialized classroom instruction to our students, using best educational practices, paired with the principles of ABA. I enjoy my working relationships with our wonderful teachers, students, and families, and look forward to a bright future with Ascent Academies.
