She started her journey in ABA 10 years ago. Kate is a motivated, ambitious and hardworking individual with an inviting personality that allows you to feel comfortable in her presence. During her undergrad in Psychology at the University of Guelph, Kate did a placement at an elementary school. There, she was paired with a young boy with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

In her 10 years within the field, she has held various positions which include: Educational Assistant, Social Group Leader, Working with teens with Autism, Instructor Therapist, Group Home Support Worker (for adults with ASD), Senior Therapist, professor and many more. She finally decided she wanted to focus on children with ASD and then decided to pursue her BCBA certification, and now she is happily a Clinical Supervisor for those children. Throughout her experience in the field, Kate has developed a strong sense of compassion, empathy, and understanding which has strengthened her skills as a leader. As a Clinical Supervisor, Kate also supervises BCBA, BCaBA and RBT candidates pursuing their certifications.

Apart from consistent hard work, Kate enjoys a healthy lifestyle by going to the gym and playing soccer.
