While she worked for Dr. Tiger, she did in-home therapy for children with disabilities who engaged in severe behavior. These behaviors included aggression, self-injurious behavior, property destruction, and feeding issues. During that time she worked with individuals aged 5 to 21 years old. She previoulsy did two years of in-home early intervention therapy specifically with children with autism. She currently works in an early intervention framework as a Behavior Treatment Therapist and a Lead Therapist. Her passion lies in the prevention and reduction of severe behavior for young children on the autism spectrum.

A mother of four children — one with Autism — she often says different is not less and communication happens in more ways than verbally.
