Amy is a dually certified Speech-Language Pathologist and Board Certified Behavior Analyst. She received her Master of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst where she participated in an autism training grant. After joining Crossroads in 2009, Amy was intrigued by the overlapping roles of SLPs and BCBAs, specifically in reducing problem behavior by teaching students how to functionally communicate their wants and needs. This motivated her to complete the Certificate Program in Applied Behavior Analysis through Endicott College in 2013. Amy’s professional interests are in the areas of Verbal Behavior and Functional Communication Training (FCT).
In her free time, Amy enjoys spending time with her friends and family, going to the beach, and traveling.
