Katie holds a degree from Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly known as Ryerson University) and is certified in Therapeutic Crisis Intervention, she is also looking to pursue a Master of Education in the coming years. Katie began her career working in an ABA clinic providing 1:1 therapy to children diagnosed with ASD. She went on to work as an Education Assistant with OCDSB at a special needs school in Ottawa allowing her to engage with students with different types of skills and disabilities. Katie’s dream is to open up a forest school for kids and adults on the spectrum! She sees the positive impact connecting with nature has on her clients.

“Being a part of the first cohort of the Entry to School program was an opportunity I could not pass up. Working in a multi-disciplinary setting sounded like a great chance for growing my professional skills. This program is unique as it allows me to combine my passion for behaviour intervention while in a more natural setting.”
