A Glance From Behind the Camera

I wasn’t satisfied. 

I wanted more. 

I wanted a job that would make a difference.

I always envisioned myself working with individuals with special needs. But, life took me on a different path. I left college with a bachelor’s Degree in Communications, unsure of where that would take me. The day after graduation I started my career at a local radio station. It was just a job, something to pay the bills, but I needed a change. Something with meaning. 

Though job searching was an overwhelming task, I was lucky enough to come across a marketing assistant job at an ABA company. I was determined to make this job mine. I drove 6 hours in one day for a one-hour interview, waited a few anxious weeks, and landed the job. A job at BPI. A job where I could utilize my degree while helping individuals with autism. 

It’s hard to believe that was over 8 years ago. I have been able to witness many triumphs from the learners, the company growth, and so much more. This is more than a 9-5 job to me. Not only do I get to use my degrees daily, but I’m also allowed to enhance my skills and learn more about ABA and autism. This leads to my favorite aspect of this job, watching the learners AND families constantly grow and aspire to be their best.

The impact that BPI’s team, both clinically and operationally, has on these families is inspiring. It’s an honor to be able to indirectly assist families in finding the resources and help they need to watch their children thrive.
