Nicole’s passion for Applied Behavior Analysis began with the first ABA class she took at the University of Florida. Nicole continued taking every ABA class she could while pursuing her Psychology degree, including a graduate level survey course in ABA. After graduating in December 2003, she started working with individuals with Prader-Willi Syndrome under the supervision of Dr. Brian Iwata. Nicole received her BCaBA certificate in 2004. She went on to work in an administrative role at the Agency for Persons with Disabilities and then continued to grow her experience in the field by working in several settings and with many populations including independent living adults who were dually diagnosed with intellectual disability and an Axis 1 disorder, inpatient psychiatric adults both with criminal charges and who were civilly committed, and children diagnosed with ASD in their home setting focusing on increasing communication and decreasing behaviors that were a barrier to school and community integration. While working, Nicole received her Masters degree from Nova Southeastern University and became a BCBA in 2012. Nicole found her calling working with children and has been employed with BASS since January 2015.
When not at work, Nicole enjoys spending time with her husband, two children and three pets. She loves road trips and one day hopes to cross the country with her family in an RV.Back To Our Team
