This month, we’re giving a shoutout to Laura Medina for her hard work and dedication in her role at Therapeutic Pathways.
After earning her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology, Laura was hired at Therapeutic Pathways as a Registered Behavior Technician, and was then promoted to Lead Behavior Technician. She excelled in that position too and was promoted to Program Assistant, her current role since November 2020.
As Program Assistant at the East Bay center, Laura works closely with Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs) and Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) to deliver high-quality therapeutic services for children with autism. Every day, she’s busy gathering data, conducting fidelity checks, and helping select the best focus of therapy for each client.
Laura has certainly been busy earning degrees and certifications and gaining experience, but she says all the studying and effort has been well worth it. When asked what motivates her professionally, Laura says, “I enjoy coming to work because I want to help make a difference in clients’ lives, and I truly enjoy the staff I work with and the support they provide.”
Ample support is common among staff members at Therapeutic Pathways. No matter their role, team members stick together and work hard to support their colleagues. Laura gives substantial credit to her team at the East Bay center for making the unprecedented times of the COVID-19 pandemic easier to navigate.
If a team is only as strong as its individual members, Therapeutic Pathways is in luck. We greatly appreciate all of the hard work that our team members put into their jobs, and we’re grateful that we get to share their accomplishments online. We were able to sit down and ask Laura more questions about her role at Therapeutic Pathways.
How is the company culture at Therapeutic Pathways?
The company culture at Therapeutic Pathways is great; I enjoy everyone I work with and am happy to be able to learn from all of my colleagues.
How has your career grown since starting at Therapeutic Pathways?
I started as an RBT. Shortly after I was promoted to Lead RBT, and I recently was promoted to Program Assistant.
What is your favorite thing about working at Therapeutic Pathways?
My favorite thing about working at Therapeutic Pathways is being able to see clients reach their milestones that we all work together to accomplish.
Thank you, Laura
Without Program Assistants like Laura, our treatment programs wouldn’t function nearly as smoothly or as well as they do. Laura, thank you for all of your hard work, time, and dedication to Therapeutic Pathways. Your efforts have helped hundreds of children, and we thank you for helping us toward our goal of improving lives.
