Bio: Hi I'm Zully, I have been in the ABA field for about three years now and currently a Registered Behavior Technician. I have enjoyed working with children of various ages. The best part of the job was seeing the smiles of the children's faces when they completed or mastered a difficult obstacle for them. Enjoying the tough and laughable moments were my motivations to be apart of their ABA team. I am grateful that I am now the point of contact with all the areas we service. I enjoy talking to everyone on any given day. A little bit about me is that I am currently twenty-three years old and I enjoy spending my time with my dog Charlie, traveling, thrift shopping and just about anything to consume my time.
