Laura was introduced to the autism community at a very young age, as she grew up with an older sister with autism. It wasn’t until high school and into college that she truly realized her passion helping those with autism and other developmental disorder, as she took part in a variety of summer camps and classes for both kids and adults with disabilities.
Laura received her bachelor’s degree in biology and a minor in psychology from Gonzaga University. Not long after graduating, she stumbled across the field of ABA and has been working with APPLE Consulting since December 2017. She has loved the impact she can have on improving the lives of others.
Laura is excited to finish up her Master of Science in Autism and Applied Behavior Analysis in Summer 2022 and further help kids with autism and their families. In the future, she would like to either go into research, work in the school setting, or work on creating programs to help transition young adults with autism into the workplace and/or independent living situations.
