Meet Our Chief Clinical Officer

Born and raised in Oakland County, Michigan, Christina has spent over a decade practicing as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. She received her graduate training in Applied Behavior Analysis from Western Michigan University, an institution that is world-renowned for its contributions to behavioral psychology, particularly for research and the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders.

Christina practiced in a variety of large clinical settings and leadership roles until 2014, when she became inspired to fulfill her lifelong dream of building therapy centers that provide the highest level of care to its clients.

Gateway has since become one of the country’s finest centers for the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders, in large part because of Christina’s incredible passion – both for her profession as a Behavior Analyst and for the children, families and communities that Gateway proudly serves.
