Sally earned her Master’s Degree in Professional Leadership from Armstrong Atlantic State University in 2006. Soon after graduating two of her children were diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders; one with severe autism and the other with Asperger’s syndrome. Upon discovering that insurance was virtually unavailable, thus preventing access to effective treatment, she returned to Armstrong to pursue certification in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). While enrolled she completed an internship position under a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) working with Chatham-County Public School System. The majority of her internship experience took place at Jumpstart, a specialized Pre-K program based on ABA methods.
In 2011 Sally became a Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA) and was offered a Clinical Director’s position. She opened and directed two clinics serving more than thirty children with a range of disabilities and delays. The children she has worked with over the years have made wonderful improvements and many have transitioned into mainstream public education.
In 2012 Sally completed coursework at the Florida Institute of Technology (FIT) for her Master’s level certification as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). She opened ABA Therapy Center in the spring of 2013 where she continues to practice. Her professional interests and areas of expertise include teaching verbal behavior & social skills to children with Autism Spectrum Disorders; she also is in the process of building a non-profit to provide ABA services to families who do not have insurance coverage.
