I grew up here in Lakeland. My husband's name
is Matt, we have been married since 2013. I have a
Bachelor's in Education from USF Lakeland. In 2009, I
became a respite care worker, then was trained as an ABA
Behavioral Technician. In 2010, I began working
at Holladay Child Development Services as a
Behavioral Technician. I am currently studying to
become certified as a Board Certified Assistant Behavior
I am from Tennessee and recently moved to Florida in 2014. I enjoy the gorgeous Florida beaches, running, Zumba, and travel. I graduated with a Master's in Elementary Education in 2012 from Union University in TN and am currently enrolled in courses to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, expected 2016! Prior to teaching in the AIP classroom, I have worked as a one-on-one behavior therapist, substitute teacher, and a kid's fitness, gymnastics, and cheerleading coach. So, I love working with children! I believe we will have a great year combining learning with excitement and motivation.
