How do you feel about leading the expansion of ALP in North Carolina?
Leading the expansion of ALP in North Carolina is one of the most exciting opportunities I’ve had in my career as a BCBA. I am thrilled to be spearheading the growth of such a well-structured organization, with firm routes and resources in both the clinical, and business sides of Behavior Analysis. As I continue to get settled in as the Associate Clinical Director, the support I have received from upper management has been overwhelming! ALP is an organization that works exceedingly hard to prioritize both its clients and staff.
What are you looking forward to in servicing the North Carolina Community?
In North Carolina, ABA resources are still somewhat sparse, despite the exponentially growing population in need of therapeutic services. First and foremost, I am thrilled to be able to provide a wider variety of high-quality options to families seeking ABA services. I am looking forward to partnering with schools, other providers, and organizations in the community, to truly allow for a holistic, team approach in serving our families. While the Triangle area has some of the best Autism resources in the country, spreading education and awareness both of Autism and ABA will be an ongoing goal as long as I am serving as an advocate in this field!
What do enjoy the most in working the field that you are in?
Although I’ve had to harness my “inner professional”, I am still a big kid at heart. I love that this field allows me the flexibility to use my energy and creativity to help others—What a combination! The science of ABA is applicable to nearly every setting and aspect of life; I get to continue to learn and grow as an individual, using my “work” as a resource. Ultimately, experiencing the progress made by the individuals whom I work with is irreplaceable; the opportunity to work in this field is rewarding beyond measure.
