Hi, my name is MeKayla Jackson-Ukaha. I currently hold the position of Lead Registered Behavior Technician, offering Applied Behavior analysis (ABA) services across clinical, school, and home settings. My journey in the field of education began in 2015, I have held diverse roles as a substitute, intern, and inclusion advocate. Based on my experience, I decided to further my education and career within special education and related services.
