My Story

I have always enjoyed helping those in need. When I started my college career, I was unsure of which path to take, but had strong interests in the medical field, education, and mental health. My interests in these areas led me to pursue a degree in Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of Illinois at Chicago. During my time at UIC, I participated in a variety of volunteer opportunities in the rehabilitation field, serving as an allied health volunteer at Shirley Ryan Ability Lab, a Research Assistant for the UIC Department of Disability and Human Development, and an intern at a therapeutic preschool. After graduating from UIC in May 2020, I was excited to accept a position as a therapeutic assistant at Eyas Landing and became an Eyas employee in June 2020. I transitioned to a Behavior Therapist role soon after and have since become a Registered Behavior Technician.

My Eyas Landing

Working at Eyas Landing has been a great experience. Being part of a multidisciplinary team has helped me learn so much about pediatric therapy and I love getting to work with our awesome kiddos. I am very grateful to be a part of the Eyas Landing team!

My Professional Goals

  1. I plan on continuing to work in the pediatric therapy field and hope to eventually pursue a master’s degree in Social Work or a related field.

Testimonials

You come in every day with a positive attitude and a caring heart and make everyone around you feel so supported. Thanks for all of your hard work and dedication with the orange pod kids.
