From the Founder
Dear Families and Community,
I love to learn! In fact, my most fulfilling and positive experiences involve education. Despite an upbringing in an area where education was difficult to obtain — and affording college almost impossible — pursuing higher learning gave me freedom and purpose, a sense of security, and a rewarding adult life. I want to help others attain that.
Courageous people who live and cope with disabilities remain my heroes, particularly those who live with autism and the families that support them. Wind Rose exists for the sole purpose of understanding their challenges and behaviors — and to help them lead happier and fulfilled lives.
As a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and Certified Autism Specialist with seventeen years of experience, my life’s work follows a Bachelors of Psychology from the University of Houston, a Masters of Special Education from UNT, and a safety care trainer certification.
I have been an invited speaker at local universities, national and international organizations (presenting on topics such as executive functioning, advanced social cognition, how to teach advanced language skills, and behavior management). Recently, I presented at the Autism One conference in Chicago and the Autism Education Summit hosted by Generation Rescue.
I am a a member of Texas Association of Behavior Analysis (TxABA), the Association of Professional Behavior Analysts (APBA), the Association for Behavior Analysis International (ABAI), a member of the North Texas Autism special interest group and a charter member of the Texas Behavior Analysis Public Policy Group. I am also currently the Owner and Executive Director of Concept Connections LTD, a clinical practice dedicated to the treatment of autism and other developmental disabilities across the lifespan.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve you and your children, as we find a way to navigate better and together through life.
