Michael received his first experiences in ABA while working as a teacher’s assistant at a special education school during the summer after he graduated high school. This inspired him to pursue a career in ABA in college, leading him to internships, research, and jobs in the field in Connecticut, New York, and Massachusetts throughout undergraduate and graduate studies.

He feels that the impact that we have on the population we work with is of utmost importance and improving the lives of each child and family that we service will always be the priority. Some of his greatest experiences have come from the people he has connected with on his path from a teacher’s assistant to an LBA.
