Jaime's current areas of interest include: client rights, behavioral gerontology, adult social skills groups, and ACT.
Jaime's areas of expertise include: multidisciplinary collaboration, staff training, swift assessment and treatment of severe challenging behaviors, efficient and practical programming, and functional communication training.
Outside of the ABA world, Jaime enjoys traveling and exploring, spending time with friends and family, and mindfulness training.
