MS, BCBA, LBA
Nicole has been working in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) since 2005. She first started her career as a grad scholar at the May Institute, where she worked with individuals with brain injury in both a school and residential setting. During her time at the May Institute, she was involved in several research projects and completed a Master's degree in ABA at Northeastern University. As a graduate student, Nicole also worked for a private consulting firm in Boston that provided 1:1 therapy in the home and public school setting. While in Boston, Nicole worked primarily with children on the autism spectrum. In addition, she directed an after school program and camps that focused on improving social skills. Nicole also presented her research at the BABAT and ABAI conferences.
In 2010, Nicole moved to the Northwest where she continued her work in the field and worked with many families located on military, naval, and air force bases. During that time, she served as Regional Director and helped oversee ABA programming for both the Midwest and Northwest regions. As she has she has progressed in the field, she has found that collaboration between family, school, and various therapy providers can make a true difference in the progress that her students make.
Nicole looks forward to using her diverse background to continue making positive changes in the lives of her students and their families. Nicole has been with APPLE since January of 2014.
