Mark was born and raised in the Central Valley of California. He was born in Tulare but grew up in Fresno County in a small town called Helm. Growing up, Mark lived on the school grounds with his family where his father was the principal and his mother was a 2nd and 3rd grade teacher. The school was very small with only approximately 60 students from grades K-8. As far as hobbies and interests, Mark likes classic cars and trucks, playing tennis and watching his kids grow up to be fine, young citizens.
Mark has been with ESCC since December of 2017 and is currently the Clinical Manager for the Autism and Behavior Intervention Services department. He earned his PhD in Behavior Analysis at the University of Nevada-Reno and while studying there, he experienced the rise of ABA services as the treatment of choice for people on the autism spectrum.
Mark is continuously inspired by the families that radically change their lives to help their children. Mark states, “The commitment required by families to embrace in-home ABA services for their children is often underappreciated, and I have tremendous respect for those that start and continue the long journey.”
“Mark has brought a very high level of knowledge and understanding of ABA services to our organization. His passion for excellence and developing professionals in this field was just what we needed for our growing program. I feel privileged to work with him!” – Scott Webb, Executive Director
