| 0

With 15 years in the field, Gabrielle has experience with clients ranging from newborn to 45 years of age. She has her Masters Degree in Educational Psychology and completed her BCBA coursework through the Florida Institute of Technology. In the past 15 years she has worked in early intervention, intensive behavior intervention, adaptive skills training, school aged services, adult group home intervention, vocational skills training, as well as parent and family training. She is fluent in developing procedures for staff regarding client goals based on empirical recommendations.

Gabrielle lived for almost 2 year in West Africa, Conakry Guinea. Where she was the only BCBA in country. Through pro-bono work, she organized sustainable intervention for a local special needs school and local orphanage. She trained and developed intervention models for a third world location and utilized networking resources to ensure quality of life improvements for socially significant deficits. Prior to her posting in Conakry, she lived for 20 months in Malta, a small Island off the coast of Sicily. Before her arrival, there were no structured evidenced based interventions for children with developmental disabilities. Serving as the only BCBA on the island of Malta, she implemented a three-part plan to ensure evidenced based intervention and treatment for children with developmental disabilities. The structured plan, encompassing a Telehealth model, ensured continued growth after her departure and eventually secured governmental funding for ABA intervention and the continued growth of the service. Prior to her time overseas, she worked as a Clinical Director for a leading ABA company in California. Gabrielle has provided Distance BCBA Supervision for candidates in both the United States and in Europe. She continues to support in the development of Telehealth intervention models in order to further disseminate ABA services in remote locations.  She is most passionate about ABA dissemination and enjoys providing BCBA supervision to help our field continue to grow.
