Favorite Parts of ABA:

I love bringing hope and support to families of newly diagnosed children with autism, just as other families provided that support to me as I was beginning our family’s journey. I celebrate every success our learners achieve along with their families.

Community Involvement:

  • Cardinal Innovations Healthcare Provider Council
  • IDD Advisory Committee to Cardinal Innovations Healthcare
  • MOJI Coffee + More Board Member
  • Autism Society of Forsyth County Chapter Member
  • Leadership Winston-Salem, Class of 2016

Interests Outside of Work:

I enjoy going to music and community festivals with my son, pontoon boating with my family, looking out over the ocean and listening to the sound of the waves, spending time with friends, and traveling.

What ABtA’s Mission and Values Mean to Me:

When I first began our journey, I was fortunate to find a wonderful BCBA who worked together with me to develop an ABA program in which my son thrived and that fit well with my family’s needs. Over the years, I have met many families that were unable to find high-quality ABA providers. I created A Bridge to Achievement so that families would have access to exceptional services that centered on improving the quality of life of the whole family and ensured their children would reach their full potential. Every decision our leadership team makes supports the goal that we always provide the same program excellence and level of support that I required for my son and my family.
