BIO

I’ve been working with Skybound since the summer of 2020, but have been working in the field of ABA with individuals with ASD since 2012. I’m from Vancouver, Canada and have lived in Wales since 2019.

After my very first session of working as a Behavioural Technician, I was hooked and knew that this was the field that I wanted to spend my life working in. There is no greater feeling than being able to help someone achieve their goals, however small they may seem. Over the years I worked in home, clinical, respite, and school settings. I also have experience in teaching adapted programs that promote recreational skills and leisure activities to individuals aged 3-21 who have been diagnosed with ASD. Some of these include swimming, gymnastics, snowshoeing, paddling, and rock climbing.

I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of the Fraser Valley in 2015 and my post-baccalaureate diploma in ABA and Autism from Capilano University in 2018. I moved to Wales to complete my Masters degree in ABA and Therapy, and graduated from the program in 2020. I am now working towards my goal of becoming a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst.

Outside of work, I take every chance I can to explore this incredibly beautiful country. I like to spend my weekends hiking, baking, reading and spending time outdoors.
