Alaina has been working with children since she was a teenager. Alaina fell in love with Applied Behavior Analysis soon after graduating with her undergraduate from Michigan State University and pursued a Master’s of Science in Psychology, with a focus in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) from Capella University. During graduate school, she became certified as a BCaBA and began supervising her own caseload, becoming certified as a BCBA upon graduating in Spring of 2016. Alaina’s approach to ABA is strongly influenced by her background in child development and teaching students to reach important, functional milestones. Alaina is a newlywed, she married her husband Tyler only last Fall. Alaina is from the area, and she and Tyler recently returned to the area and bought their first house in Brighton, right around the corner from ORC! Alaina is a very family-oriented individual and a very active person who enjoys exercise and outdoor fun. Alaina loves coffee and being a “dog mom” to Rogue, their rescued only “child”.
