Registered Behavior Technician
Delilah was born in Hialeah, FL and raised in New York City. She attended Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), graduated with a Bachelors in Packaging Science and then moved back to South Florida to be closer to her family (and Miami's sandy beaches of course!). After completing a couple internships, Delilah realized that Packaging Science did not fuel her passions and her talents could be better utilized elsewhere. Delilah thought of her younger brother who was diagnosed with autism as a toddler and how much her mother struggled to get the support they needed. In 2018, she took a leap of faith, became a Behavior Technician and began to not only help her own mother, but other parents learn to best service their child through Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).
