I am currently a student pursuing a degree in Psychology with an emphasis on behavioral analysis, predominantly within children's studies. I have been working with children for the past two years, and have been a Behavioral Therapist for the last year. Prior to that I worked various jobs within customer service and managerial positions that have helped me develop my current work ethic, while also providing me with various skills such as time management, leadership and communication.
