She began working with Priorities ABA in 2004, providing 1:1 ABA therapy to children on the Autism Spectrum. Emily works in home, community, and school settings, designing ABA programs around the strengths and weaknesses of children with autism.

“When I started my graduate degree, I wanted to work with children who had been abused. I met Dr. Jeannie Golden and decided to take her ABA courses as electives. My original internship fell through and I needed to start my hours, so I started doing therapy with a child with autism. After 3 days, I decided that I wanted to work with children on the Autism Spectrum. I changed my internship focus and have loved it ever since.”
