My name is Winnie! I am currently a Registered Behavior Technician and have been working in the ABA field for 2 years. I currently possess a Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Neuroscience from St. Edwards University and I am currently working towards my Master of Science in Psychology with a concentration in Applied Behavior Analysis. I am due to graduate in 2023 and I plan to sit for my BCBA exam after graduation. I have a passion for working with special needs individuals and working to improve their quality of life. I am grateful to be a part of Independent Identity and pursue this passion of mine! When I am not working or focusing on school, I like to work out, sing, play guitar, draw, and, most importantly, sleep.
