“When I first started college, I knew I wanted a career in some type of human services where I could interact with and help people on a daily basis. Applied behavior analysis presented me with all of that and more. I have worked with some brilliant professionals and even more wonderful clients. I started my career thinking that I wanted to help other people, but had no idea how much my clients would help me grow as a person. I am so grateful to have found this amazing career, and feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to continue my growth within the field at Centerpiece LLC.”
