Growth, Collaboration, Passion

Our team is committed to growth and each member is well vetted, hand selected and has experience. Everyone is a Registered Behavior Technician, a higher standard of training that is not required, has a minimum of a bachelor's degree and at least one year of experience. We are passionate about what we do and are constantly learning and making steady progress toward determined goals in our collaborative environment. We provide consistency with our atypical low turnover rate and take a hands-on approach.

If I could work myself out of a job, I would, happily." In free time, Erin does Crossfit and loves to read, shop, be with her family and drink coffee.
