Kristen McDaniel is the LASARD facilitator located in Southwest/Southcentral Louisiana. She received both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from McNeese State University. Her undergrad is in early childhood education and graduate is in psychology with a concentration in applied behavior analysis. She was a classroom teacher, both regular and special education, for six years. In March 2019, she became a board certified behavior analysis and left the classroom to practice ABA in the clinic setting. Not long after leaving the classroom, she realized how much she missed being in the school setting, and then found LASARD! Kristen loves going into the schools and interacting with the students and facility. Outside of work, Kristen has two English Bulldogs named Waylon and Willow who are her babies! She also loves hosting get-togethers and cooking for her friends and family and of course, partaking in all the delicious cuisine Cajun Country has to offer.
