Biography

Jenn is a behavioral interventionist by trade, having worked extensively with individuals with autism and their families for over a decade, even opening offices for ABA companies throughout the country. To satisfy her intellectual curiosities, she transitioned to neuroscience research using EEG to examine brain development in toddlers and preschoolers, in addition to changes in the brain following intervention in young children with autism. Originally from Southern California, she graduated from the University of California, San Diego, with a degree in psychology. Ultimately, her goal is to contribute to technology that adapts interventions conventionally constrained to in-person settings to the digital space.
