When asked why she pursued working in the field of behavior analysis, Kelleen shares “From an early age, I have always felt passionate about working with neurodiverse populations, as I have several family members who work in related fields. I pursued a career in behavior analysis because of the positive changes I was able to help children with autism and other behavioral concerns achieve and the lasting impact that had for families.”
After earning a Master’s degree in Applied Behavior Analysis from Drexel University in Philadelphia and obtaining her BCBA, Kelleen gained experience working as a Behavior Analyst and Clinical Research Associate at the A.J. Drexel Autism Institute (AJDAI). At the AJDAI, Kelleen developed and supported many research initiatives to directly serve communities within Philadelphia and the surrounding area. Kelleen has also worked as a home-based applied behavior analysis instructor and school-based consultant in multiple school districts.
Kelleen explains that she was particularly interested in working at NeurAbilities because “I was excited about the opportunity to continue to provide families with high quality ABA services while directly collaborating with an interdisciplinary team who share a similar passion for supporting neurodiverse patients.”
