Niki began working with hope in January of 2012 as a line therapist, after graduating from Clemson in December of 2011. In April of 2013, Niki became a lead therapist. In the summer of 2014, Niki taught the K5/1st grade Bridging the Gap program. 

Before coming to Hope, Niki had an internship in Colombia, South America at a school for children and adolescents with Autism, Down Syndrome, and Cerebral Palsy which is what truly sparked my interest for working in this field. Niki has completed the FIT program and received a Masters in Professional Behavior Analysis in 2015. 

Niki enjoys working not only with our children, but also their families and other caregivers involved in their lives and seeing the impact that the training they receive has on their entire family's everyday life.
