I began working with people with disabilities when I was around 14 years-old with a soccer organization in California. Going to college I obtained a year of experience working with children on the autism spectrum and found what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. In December 2019 I graduated from the University of California – Merced with a Bachelor of Arts in Cognitive Science. By February 2020 I started working with Tanner Autism and could not be more thrilled to call this my career. I have always held on to Dr. Seuss’s words, “Unless someone like you cares a whole lot, nothing is going to get better, it’s not.” With hard work and dedication we can really make a difference in people’s lives. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time outdoors with friends and family, painting, and singing like a crazy person in my car.
