I first discovered ABA while in college working on my BA in psychology, and my professors urged me to complete additional coursework in the area because I took to it well. I completed my BA in psychology, with a certification in ABA before taking some time to settle in and sort out life after college. I started working in the field in 2015 and have loved getting to interact with and help clients learn and grow. After a long day I enjoy painting, or playing games, sometimes by myself, sometimes with my children. I love playing with my kids to unwind, as well as going to the gym to blow off some steam.
I love talking to kids and playing games to work on pairing during their breaks. Sometimes we talk about games, or cartoons, or just their day and things that they like, but I love hearing them talk about things that excite them! My favorite thing about my job is spending time with the kids and seeing how learn and grow. I love knowing the impact of what I do, and what that means to families. I know first-hand, as I have a child on spectrum as well, and the services my son has been able to access have made a huge impact on the quality of his life, as well as that of our family.
If I was not doing ABA I would likely be working in human resources. As a kid, I wanted to be an actor when I grew up, but there is still always time to start that later in life. I love what I do, and working with kids gives me a great outlet to use my skills to help others improve their lives
I entered the field of ABA in September of 2016 and obtained my RBT certification, but was quickly hooked and is currently completing the necessary coursework to obtain my master’s and advance my career in the field. I have experience as a special education teacher in a self-contained high school and middle school and a background in math and science. While my passion for data drives me further into the field, what I enjoy most watching the growth of my clients. I enjoy all manner of board and card games with clients and is dabbling in Minecraft, much to the delight of the clients. I can frequently be found creating new materials or assisting clients with developing cooking skills. Outside of work, I enjoy listening to podcasts, playing music bingo, and drinking lots of tea.
I have been involved in ABA since June of 2022 and I found it through our co-owner, Shanti Bradley, who I have known for many years and suggested that I look into becoming an RBT. I applied for the position here and immediately fell in love with the job. Watching each and every single one of the clients grow is a huge reward in our field and it has made me want to potentially pursue a career in the future in it. Growing up, I have changed my mind so many times on what I wanted to be. I am currently a junior in college at Purdue University, and I still have no idea the path that I am on or the exact concentration of what I would like to do, but I know I will eventually figure it out. My favorite thing to do with the clients to pair or on their breaks is taking them to the park, bouncing on yoga balls, playing games, and just listening to their giggles when playing with each other. My absolute favorite thing about my job is being able to pair with the clients and watching them grow as individuals. Although I am not in the office when I am away at school, I love hearing about the progress each of them have made and being able to see it in person when I finally return over the summer or on my winter break. After a long day, I like to watch movies or play sand volleyball with my friends, cuddle with my dogs, or lay around and watch a TV show.
I stumbled upon ABA after moving to Goshen and looking for a career I could find myself enjoying. I immediately fell in love with the job. I have been in the field for about 1 and a half years, and conitinue to learn new things every day.
I find that you dont't really have a single favorite thing to do with a client, each one is unique and has a favorite thing to do. My favorite part of the job are the clients. You meet so many fun kids, who change your perspective on the world. If I weren't in this field, I would probably try being a writer or working in the technology field. I wanted to be everyhting when I was growing up. I enjoy reading, drawing, and playing games with friends (such as D&D or video games) after a long day.
I first learned of ABA briefly in an undergraduate course while studying for my Bachelor's of Science in Psychology. I did not show a true interest in ABA until I had concluded my internship for this degree, at which time, a fellow intern suggested I researched the field more thoroughly. At this time, I realized the core of this field aligned with my own values and goals for my professional career. I have been in this field for about 6 years now.
My favorite thing to do with clients is dependent upon the client as they all have unique activities or items they tend to enjoy. Some of the activities I have engaged in with clients includes playing tag or chase, listening to music, searching for animals or cars out the window, playing a game they enjoy, or engaging in conversation with them to get to know each other better. The moment a client ‘gets’ something, that’s the moment I know that I have implemented their programming correctly and they have gained a skill they will need for the rest of their life. There’s no other feeling in the world that compares to knowing you are responsible for making a positive impact on another person’s life that they will take with them forever. I had nearly entered a PsyD program prior to entering this field, however, I do still plan on continuing that path eventually. I had always thought I would either be a veterinarian or a lawyer when I was very young, as I grew, I was unsure of my specific path but knew I wanted to help people and wanted to enter a profession that made the biggest impact on others. I typically spend time making crafts, spending time with my two corgis, or watching documentaries.
