M.Ed., BCBA, LBA
Lisa discovered her passion for teaching children with autism in 2006 when she took a position as a para-educator in the extended day and social skill preschool programs in the Lake Washington School District. In 2010, Lisa decided she wanted to further her education about Applied Behavior Analysis to better service the families she was working with. She was accepted to the University of Washington Early Childhood Special Education Master’s Program and also took the additional coursework that would prepare for her eventual BCBA certification in 2013. Throughout graduate school Lisa furthered her experience working with toddlers and preschoolers in special education programs at the UW Experimental Education Unit, Kindering Center, and the Bellevue School District. After graduation in 2012, Lisa worked as a Preschool Autism Specialist and SNAPS Coordinator in the Lake Washington School District.
Lisa loves her work. She especially enjoys collaborating with families and the creativity that comes with individualizing programs to fit a child’s personal learning style. She believes children learn best through success, and when instruction is fun and incorporates the individualized strengths and interests of the child. Lisa joined APPLE Consulting in January of 2015.
