Sam has been working with children with autism for several years. She completed her bachelor’s degree in Behavioral Neuroscience at the University of San Diego (USD). She earned her master’s degree in Special Education from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) and has recently completed her doctoral degree there as well. Her dissertation was focused on the retention rates of behavior technicians in the field. One of her favorite things about working with children with autism is seeing the growth that the child and their family do together. She is nationally recognized as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and is a Licensed Behavior Analyst (LBA) in the state of Nevada.
