- Son-Rise Intensive Program Coordinator
"My passion for working and connecting with children with Autism was born in 2007, when I was working at an intergrated preschool for special children. This is where I first saw the magic and wonder that is the mind of a child with Autism. In loving this little boy, and being intrigued and inspired by his ways, a fire lit in my heart and I knew I was going to pursue working with special children and their families! As years passed, I worked in a school for children with Autism in Denver, then was a full-time in-home therapist with a young boy with autism, then found 2 wonderful Son-Rise families and was a part of both of their programs for a year before becoming a part of the amazing Son-Rise Program team at the Autism Treatment Center of America™. I LOVE what I do and am so grateful for each and every child I get to work with! "
