Courtney has been working with children with autism spectrum disorder and other related developmental delays since 2011 across a variety of settings including clinic, school, home, therapeutic pre-k and kindergarten classrooms, and Telehealth. Her passion to support children and their families really inspired her professionally, as she could not only relate from personal experiences of having a nephew on the spectrum, but knowing the impact she could make by providing education and support to families. With over 5 years of clinical experience as a BCBA, her passion is working with early learners and their families to foster communication, social, play, and daily living skills through the development of individualized treatment goals with a multidisciplinary team. Her favorite part of being a BCBA is empowering children by teaching them to communicate their wants and needs and how to be an advocate for themselves.
In her free time, Courtney enjoy’s taking advantage of all the city of Chicago has to offer. She can be found trying new restaurants, attending festivals or concerts, and cheering on her favorite sport teams.
