Clinical Director, Chicagoland-West & Lombard, Illinois
Dana graduated from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, with a master’s degree in applied behavior analysis. Since 2008, she has worked with individuals with varying abilities aged two through adulthood in therapeutic day schools, public schools, vocational programs, and in clients’ homes. It was through her work in schools that she realized how effective direct therapy and collaborative efforts across disciplines could be for children and adults with autism and special needs. After joining Total Spectrum in 2018 as a behavior analyst, Dana now serves as the assistant clinical director of the Chicagoland-West region and also manages the Lombard Learning Center. In her spare time, she loves to go to concerts and sporting events (go Blackhawks!) and to spend time outdoors.
