Yvette has been a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) since 2019. She earned her B.A. in Psychology from Florida International University in 2014. While deciding on what she was planning to do for graduate school, she started working as a behavioral therapist for children with autism and related conditions. After becoming a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) in 2015, she enjoyed working in the field and decided to pursue a career in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). She earned her M.A. in ABA at Ball State University.
She has worked with children, aged 2-16, with developmental conditions in a clinical setting, in homes, and in the community. Yvette is dedicated to enriching the lives of the families she works with, especially in developing skills related to functional communication and daily living. Her interests are educating others in the use of ABA in everyday life, advocacy for neurodiverse individuals, and continuing to expand her knowledge. She hopes to make a positive and meaningful impact by demonstrating that everyone is capable of reaching their best self.
