BOARD CERTIFIED BEHAVIOR ANALYST / BEHAVIOR CONSULTANT
Elizabeth is the Clinical Supervisor for our team of Behavior Consultants for the Surrey, Delta, and Burnaby locations.
Liz is originally from the U.S. and started working in the field in 2005 right after graduating college from the University of Rochester. She began her career at The New England Center for Children (NECC), a school and research center for children with autism, just outside of Boston, and worked there for 14 amazing years where she quickly grew to love the field of Behavior Analysis.
During her time at NECC, Liz completed her MS in ABA from Northeastern University in 2012. She became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) in 2013 and worked in various departments within the organization both in Boston and internationally in the Middle East. She has worked with a variety of students ranging from preschool age and younger in the Day Services Program to teenagers in the Residential and Staff-Intensive programs.
Most recently she had worked at the school located in Abu Dhabi as the Assistant Program Director of the Secondary Department. She oversaw the clinical and educational programming along with the day-to-day operations of up to eight classrooms with almost 60 students and 50 staff in total.
Liz’s research interests include; assessment and treatment of severe problem behavior, treatment of sleep issues, Functional Communication Training, and Stimulus Equivalence. She also has experience in feeding/food exposure, video modeling, social skills, and toilet training. She is very passionate about staff and parent training and feels that this is a crucial part of the service delivery package. She also focuses on Systems Development and Implementation of Quality Behavioral Services at Symbiosis.
Liz moved to Canada in August 2019 with her family and 3 children. She took some time off from the field to help get her family adjusted to living in British Columbia (BC). She also coaches her daughter’s Soccer team (although things are currently on hold with the Pandemic).
