Kristina Shiao, ABA Lead Children’s Services

My passions have led me to help those in need. Since moving to St. Thomas, I have discovered that serving families of children diagnosed with developmental disorders such as Autism Spectrum Disorder and Asperger’s Syndrome is how I want to make meaningful change on this island community. I recently graduated with Honors in Psychology and a minor in Child Development from Florida State University. My past focus was heavily research based as I worked in two psychology labs while (still) in the process of getting my Thesis published. I’ve been encouraged by colleagues and family to continue my education and currently I am taking postgraduate classes to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst! As a Florida native with familial culture rooted from Taiwan, another tropical island, I have always loved the ocean. I enjoy cooking delicious foods, trying new outdoor activities and traveling the world. I absolutely love what I do as an ABA Therapist and I look forward to a bright future with ITS on St. Thomas!
