Steffi got her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Columbia College in Saint Robert, Missouri in 2013. She found her passion for working with autistic children while working as a paraprofessional in a preschool special education classroom. After learning about applied behavior analysis and hearing about a new ABA company in Nebraska, Steffi moved to Omaha in 2017 and began working for Radical Minds as a registered behavior technician.
She quickly fell in love with the field of ABA, and began coursework to become certified as a Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst. While working as a BCaBA, she attended graduate school online at Arizona State University, and graduated with her master’s degree in special education in 2021. She then became certified as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst a few months later.
Steffi has experience working with clients ages 2-14 years old, and has experience teaching toileting skills, functional communication, and daily living skills, as well as reduction of aggression and other challenging behaviors.
While not at work, Steffi loves baking and decorating gluten-free cookies, taking walks with her dog, cleaning and organizing, and binging true-crime documentaries.
