"The student is always right. He is not asleep, not unmotivated, not sick, and he can learn a great deal if we provide the right contingencies of reinforcement." - Fred Keller
I love spending time with family and friends. I enjoy doing anything outside such as, running, biking, camping, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, snowboarding, and anything else that gets me outside and moving. If an activity involves food I will most likely enjoy it and I like to cook when I have time.

My early experience involved working with both children and adults with developmental disabilities in a variety of settings; these ranged from kindergarten classrooms to adult foster care homes. I was introduced to ABA in 2011 and began working with children with ASD. In 2014, I began working at DE as a behavior technician and the following year attended Western Michigan University to obtain my master’s degree. After obtaining my degree I transitioned into a BCBA role at DE.
