I have 3 beautiful and crazy children. I was a stay at home mom for 7 years and when the opportunity to join The Olive Branch in 2018 arose, I couldn't pass it up! Learning the in's and outs of ABA therapy is a continued passion. I strive to find new interventions everyday to provide the best therapy for our clients. I am focused on ensuring that the client's needs and goals are met. I am beyond blessed to have joined this company and help Tera grow and build to improve our clients lives. I am continuing my education to earn my Bachelor's degree and eventually my BcaBA. By far the best life decision I have made!
