“As an English major in college, I wasn’t a huge science person. After working in a program for children with autism that was ABA based, I was shocked at how powerful this science was for the students and their families. It was truly life-changing for them, and for me as well. I knew that I wanted to be a part of something that helped some of the most vulnerable amongst us in such an important way.”
