As a young graduate of Texas A&M University in 2008, I wasn't quite sure what this thing called life would hold, I just knew wherever life took me Christ needed to be the Captain of the ship. I began working in the field of special education with College Station Independent School District as a paraprofessional in a classroom with young children with autism. It was that position that led me down a long and fulfilling career in education. During my professional career, I’ve welded various job titles, including paraprofessional, Speech Pathologist Assistant, Registered Behavior Technician, and teacher. I’m currently pursuing a Masters degree in Special Education at Arizona State University with hopes of one day becoming a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, where I will be able use my gifts to assist economically disadvantaged families.
