Sarah received her Master’s degree in Psychology with a specialization in Applied Behavior Analysis from Florida State University. Her interest in behavior analysis began during her undergraduate studies at Florida State University, where she worked with a young child on the autism spectrum who received in-home behavior support services. Sarah’s curiosity of the field grew when trained and asked to implement behavior interventions in the home of the child. During her graduate studies, she worked in the public school setting as a consultant developing and training school staff to implement behavioral intervention programs with primarily typically functioning children in the elementary school setting. She is a member of the Florida Association of Behavior Analysis and the Capital Association for Behavior Analysis.
