Facts

I have lived in 4 different states: Texas, California, Minnesota, and Michigan.

I started college at the age of 16 and started graduate school at 19.

I studied martial arts for 15 years.

Profile

I love working at Developmental Enhancement, and I love working with our kids! It makes my day to see their smiles and to see the great things they achieve. I am grateful for the kind, supportive environment created by my coworkers. I believe that the principles of applied behavior analysis give us the tools to help kids learn new skills and to help families reach their goals.

I live a pretty quiet life. My hobbies include crocheting, reading, and board games. I really enjoy cuddling up with my two cats and reading a good book under a warm blanket! I also occasionally like to go to the movies and take in a good sci-fi or adventure flick.
