BA ~ Grand Valley State University (Allied HealthScience)
My bachelor’s Degree in Allied Health Sciences and minor in Psychology has provided me with the knowledge of anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, research methods in psychology, research methods in allied health sciences and abnormal psychology to state a few. I have also taken courses that involved special populations, such as people with disabilities and the elderly.
Through my volunteer work at various locations and work as a certified nurse assistant I have developed a compassionate approach to assisting people with medical and physical disabilities. I have proven my ability to build positive relationships with patients, family members and medical professionals. Through my work as a research assistant I have developed a passion for examining current theories and the application of theories. I enjoy exploring innovative therapy methods as well as refining current therapy care strategies, my eagerness to improve current therapeutics is invaluable to an organization.
After graduating from Grand Valley State University I began working as a Behavior technician. As a Behavior Technician I provide Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy in home with children on the Autism Spectrum. I utilize the evidence-based science and learning of behavior to encourage positive behaviors and discourage negative behaviors in order to improve a variety of life skills. I track, measure and collect data on the improvement or lack thereof progress in the abilities of the child. I collaborate with the Board Certified Behavior Analyst on behavior management programs and implement behavior management programs, including recommendations and changes.
My experience has fueled my passion to help improve the wellness and success of others. Science tutor qualifications include Bachelor of Science in Allied Health and Job experience that required the application of science knowledge.
