M.Ed., BCBA, LBA
Molly graduated with a BS in Psychology from Northern Arizona University in 2014. While in her senior year, Molly completed an internship doing home therapy with two young boys with Autism. Throughout this internship, Molly got to her first exposure to the positive impact ABA can have in the lives of children with Autism and their families. After graduating college, Molly moved to Seattle to pursue her Master’s degree in the Applied Behavior Analysis program at the University of Washington. During graduate school, she worked with kindergarten and first grade students with Autism in an integrated classroom. During this time, she gained more experience on how ABA can be integrated into a school setting.
After receiving her Master’s degree in the summer of 2015, Molly joined the Applied Behavior Analysis Early Intervention team at Seattle Children’s Autism Center. She started as a therapy assistant, wanting to gain more experience in the field before becoming a BCBA. Molly passed her BCBA exam in November 2015 and became the Lead Behavior Therapist in the Early Intervention program in Spring 2017. At Seattle Children’s, Molly got the chance to work on an interdisciplinary team, expanding her knowledge of intensive early intervention for young children with Autism. Molly is so excited to continue to learn, practice, and grow as a part of the STEPS team!
In her spare time, Molly loves to read, spend time with family and friends, and explore all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
