My Story

I realized my passion for working with children in high school when I took a child development class in which I had to lead a preschool class. From that moment I knew that I wanted to work with children. While working at a pre-school I was trained in ABA procedures and techniques; this sparked my interest and passion for working with special needs children. I have not looked back since. I went back to school to receive a masters degree from Elmhurst College in early childhood special education with a specialization in developmental therapy. For the past five years, I have worked as a developmental therapist in early intervention, working with children 0-3 years old. In addition, for the past ten years, I have worked as an ABA therapist, which has given me extensive experience working with children within the home, school, and clinical settings. 

My Eyas Landing

I love being able to collaborate with all the different disciplines.  Getting to learn and grow with each child and family I work with.
