Char has been working with individuals with disabilities for over 15 years and had the opportunity to be trained in ABA by one of the world’s leading ABA experts at Autism Partnership. Char’s passion for inclusion led her to be Provo City’s first adaptive coordinator where she developed award winning adaptive recreation programs for children and adults with disabilities. Char enjoys being part of the animal rescue community in Utah where she is able to foster animals and help them find forever homes. She volunteers for Pet Partners of Utah and is in the process of training one of her dogs to become a certified therapy dog. Char grew up in Southern California and Alaska and misses the ocean every day but thinks Utah is a pretty cool place. She has a bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a minor in Autism Studies and a master’s degree in Applied Behavior Analysis from UVU.
