Michelle received her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a specialization in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) from Florida International University (FIU) in December, 2017. She is bilingual, speaking English and Spanish. She fell into the world of ABA in the Summer of 2014 through an internship. During her undergrad career, she interned at FIU’s Center of Children and Families Camp Roar Summer Treatment-Autism Spectrum Disorder Program. During this time, she fell in love with the science behind ABA and how impactful it is. She interned again the following Summer and took the leap into studying ABA. Michelle continued her education by completing her Masters in Psychology with a specialization of Applied Behavior Analysis from Capella University. Throughout the years, she has worked with diverse populations and continues to advocate for clients and families with limited resources. She provided ABA services in Florida and moved to Massachusetts in 2018. Her clinical interests include verbal behavior, social emotional regulation, daily living and self-help skills, and parent and staff training.
In her free time, she enjoys hiking, traveling (especially visiting Alaska every few years), reading, and watching thriller movies with a heavy blanket while cuddling with her dog, Coco.
