Education


I graduated from Florida State University in 1995 with a B.S. in Psychology, with an emphasis in Applied Behavior Analysis and Performance Management (an application of ABA in the workplace).


In 2004, I went back to school, and pursued a dual track thesis program in clinical ABA and Organizational Behavior Management at the Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, FL. In December 2006, I earned my M.S. in Applied Behavior Analysis.

Professional


I worked as an Exceptional Student Education teacher with Orange County Public Schools for four years, teaching elementary and middle school students with varying exceptionalities including emotional difficulties, specific learning disabilities, and mild retardation.


In 2002, I began working for Intervention Services, Inc. providing behavior analysis services to typically developed children exhibiting problem behaviors. This consisted of working with parents and teachers to develop and implement effective behavior plans in the settings in which these behaviors occurred. In 2003, I was certified as a Board Certified Associate Behavior Analyst (BCABA).


In 2004, I went to work for another agency, Interventions Unlimited, Inc., for the opportunity to work with children and young adults with autism and other developmental delays. A year later, an opportunity to work with one of my FIT professors and mentor led me to Quest, Inc, a company that provides various services to adults and children with disabilities.


I worked for Quest from 2005-2009, providing supervision for three BCaBAs, and overseeing behavior plans and skill acquisition programs for four group homes, a vocational center, and clients receiving supported living services in the community.


Currently, I am a lead co-instructor for Florida Tech's professional development program in ABA, and also provide supervision privately for those pursuing certification.

 

In 2007, I became certified as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). I am currently a member of the Association for Behavior Analysis International, The Association for Professional Behavior Analysts, and serve on the executive committee for the  Florida Association for Behavior Analysis.

Personal


I have lived and worked in the Greater Orlando area since 1996. I am married and have two children. I enjoy spending time with my family, and I can honestly say they keep me very busy! In my spare time, I enjoy using the computer, and occasionally, I serenade my wife with my guitar!
