About Me

Ann-Marie embarked on her career in 2004, working with individuals with developmental and other disabilities. She started as a camp counselor at a residential special needs summer camp. During the debriefing after each camp session, the director would ask, ‘How do you know your camper had the best time of their year?’ The camp experience made Ann-Marie realize the privilege and responsibility that comes with working with individuals with additional needs. She committed herself to ensuring that her services positively impacted her clients’ and their families’ lives. 
Ann-Marie returned to Ireland and became a behavior technician for the following five years, first in Ireland and then back in the US. She worked at the camp in addition to working as a technician in home ABA programs, a hospital setting and some school-based services while she completed her master’s degree from Simmons College. In 2009 she completed her master’s in science in Behavior Analysis and earned her BCBA certification.
Ann-Marie then returned to Ireland to serve as the Director of an ABA pilot school for several years. She later moved to the Middle East to work as the Director of an ABA clinic in Bahrain. It was there she met her husband, an Alabama native stationed overseas with the United States Coast Guard. They returned to the US in 2017 where Ann-Marie has been practicing Behavior Analysis since.
Ann-Maries journey in behavior analysis has been marked by a deep-rooted passion for fostering connection and mentorship. She believes that the heart of meaningful progress lies in the relationships we build, and she is dedicated to not only facilitating positive behavior change but also forging authentic connections with individuals, families, and fellow professionals.
Her approach to behavior analysis is rooted in evidence-based practices and a genuine desire to make a lasting impact. With a firm belief in continuous learning, she remains committed to staying updated with the latest research and emerging techniques. By blending expertise with compassion, she strives to create an environment where progress is achieved, relationships are nurtured, and the spirit of fun paves the way for a brighter more collaborative future in behavior analysis.
