I first started tutoring children with learning disabilities through "No Child Left Behind" around the time that I graduated from California State University, Northridge (CSUN) with a BA in Cinema and Television Arts with an Option in Film and a Focus in Editing. During my time at CSUN, I also developed an intense interest in Psychology and attended many Psychology classes, just missing out on a minor in Psychology by two classes by the time I graduated. After I graduated, certain circumstances prevented me from pursuing my career in Film, and I decided to try working in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis therapy (ABA) for people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities. This field caught my eye because I had first heard of it in one of my Psychology classes at CSUN and was interested in learning more about it firsthand, and because I enjoyed helping people with various learning and developmental disabilities while tutoring at my previous job. I worked in the field for a couple years before deciding to pursue an MS in Psychology. While in graduate school, I had a difficult time deciding whether I would choose to stay in ABA or choose to attempt a shift toward working more with mental health disorders, such as Schizophrenia, Depression, Anxiety Disorders, Dissociative Identity Disorder, etc. once I had graduated.

I earned my MS in Psychology from University Of Phoenix, and I chose to continue with ABA afterwards because out of all the fields of Psychology, I felt ABA was the best way for me to help others. ABA is a very logical evidence-based, and data driven approach to teaching those who do not learn the same as or at the same rate as those without learning or developmental disabilities as well as the core science behind how every person learns. My brain thrives when teaching and learning new skills, knowledge, and behaviors can be laid out, broken down, and easily made sense of, like they are when viewing things through the "ABA lens". This is because I also am neurodiverse, with diagnoses of ADHD-Inattentive Type, Anxiety Disorder, and Major Depressive Disorder. The combination of experiencing similar, if not the same, struggles as the people I want to help and having 11+ years of experience in teaching new skills and behaviors using ABA. Toward the start of these last 10 years, I became certified as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and supervised learners' treatment in home, school, community, daycare, job placement, supported living group homes, and many other settings. The first half of my career in ABA was mostly working with adolescents and adults (up to age 56) while working with children as well and the second half was shifted more towards working with children (ages 2-11).

I recently left the field of ABA because, while I loved helping so many people with my clinical and teaching skills, the inevitable administration requirements of the job took a tole on me mentally. My goal now is to continue finding new ways outside of actual ABA therapy to help others learn with the knowledge and experience I have gained while I also dive head-first back into the film-making world.

I was not aware of my ADHD diagnosis until after I had gone through graduate and post-graduate school, and only have taken medication for those specific symptoms just recently before stopping them. Due to my ignorance of my disability, I taught myself ways to cope and learn that worked better than typical approaches to learning without initially realizing it. Now, I want to continue to help others learn to approach learning in a way that will work better for them, so that they also have the chances to grow beyond the current version of themselves.
