MEET OUR FOUNDER

Born and raised in Oakland County, Michigan, Christina has spent almost a decade practicing as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. In 2008, Christina graduated from the Western Michigan University graduate program in Applied Behavior Analysis, a program that is world renowned for its contributions to behavioral psychology, particularly in relation to the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders. Since graduation, Christina practiced in a variety of large clinical settings in Chicago, Illinois, until 2014 when she returned to her Michigan home to fulfill her long time dream of building Gateway.

Since its inception, Gateway has rapidly grown into one of the finest centers for the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders in Southeastern Michigan. We have done so, in large part, because of Christina’s incredible passion, both for her profession as a Behavior Analyst, and for the children and families Gateway serves.
