Practicum vs. Fieldwork
Type of Hours Offered
I received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from West Virginia University and a Master of Science in Applied Behavior Analysis from Florida Institute of Technology (Melbourne Campus). I became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst in 2012 and obtained licensure in Virginia in 2013. I am currently employed as a Senior Behavior Analyst and Assistant Director at The Faison Center, where I oversee the organization’s performance-based management system, supervise the school’s med clinic, and develop and deliver trainings for staff. Prior to my position at Faison, I worked in public school settings where I delivered trainings to school personnel, conducted needs assessments within special education programs, and worked with administrators, teachers, and paraprofessionals to implement system-wide changes. I also have experience working as a case manager and supervisor in both clinic and in-home settings. The primary populations I’ve served have been Autism, ID, and DD. I also have years of experience training employees. I currently serve as the Secretary of VABA and recently chaired the workgroup that lead to creating this supervision engine. I strongly believe that the supervision experience plays a crucial role in the development of a behavior analysts skills and their ability to practice successfully within the field. I aim to provide a similar to experience to the one I was fortunate enough to receive in graduate school.
