We spoke with Jennifer about her excitement regarding opening a center in a brand-new region for Little Leaves and more!
What challenge excites you most about opening a new center?
The team is the heart and lifeblood of any high-quality ABA program. I am most excited to lead this (future) team of well-trained staff, to help them learn and grow, and to foster the sense of community that Little Leaves values
Community is a key reason Little Leaves is successful. Please share a positive memory you have from working within this community
This week, three clients had a fantastic game of chase! Those five-or-so minutes were FILLED with awesome peer interactions, but more importantly LOTS of laughter and smiles from both the clients and the staff who cheered them on! It was beautiful to watch!
Why did you choose to pursue ABA therapy as a profession?
From the beginning, ABA captured both my heart and my head in a way that no other “job” had. I love getting to know the kids and watching them grow! Of course, my nerdy side loves the science behind it as well.
What drove you to Little Leaves initially?
I was—and am—excited to have the opportunity to help open and lead a new region for an established company that has similar values and priorities to my own.
What does it mean to you to be in a regional director position at Little Leaves?
I am honored, humbled, and EXCITED to help start Little Leaves-Richmond. I cannot wait to put my experience and passion to work, to build an awesome team, and ultimately, to offer excellent ABA services to the community.
