I first began my work in the area of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in 2003 at Emory University’s Autism Center, in Atlanta, GA, USA. I was an assistant therapist and researcher at the center’s integrated laboratory Preschool, Walden Early Childhood Center, founded by Dr. Gail McGee. Walden was one of the first integrated educational settings in the US to offer children with and without ASD the opportunity to learn, grow, and develop together. The Center’s curriculum mixes both developmental brain science research, applied behavior analysis (ABA), and early education best practices, ensuring that all children, regardless of diagnosis, are optimally supported in their development. Upon receiving my B.A. in Psychology from Agnes Scott College, I perused graduate education in Clinical Child Psychology in Hamburg and Saarbrücken, Germany, receiving my graduate title of Diplom - Psychologin from the University of Saarland. I worked as a consultant psychologist and behavior interventionist in Sydney, Australia and throughout Chile, before returning to Atlanta. I have trained under autism researchers Dr. Ami Klin and Dr. Amy Wetherby, and Behavior Analysts Dr. Laurie Vismara and Dr. Michael Morrier, among others. I am extremely excited to return to Europe, carrying a torch for ABA, and total societal integration for individuals experiencing ASD and other developmental disorders.
