Aleksandra was born and raised in the counties of Bosnia and Herzegovina, where she attended the United World College in Mostar and later travelled to the United States to study at Methodist University in Fayetteville, North Carolina. After graduating from Methodist University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology and Counseling, Aleksandra has spent the past several years working with children and adults with special needs in different positions such as Community Programs Assistant, Habilitation Technician, and Special Needs Caregiver. Along with her work experience, Aleksandra regularly seeks to further her knowledge and specialization through certification and education. In 2017, Aleksandra completed the necessary training in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to certify her as a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT).
Ever since her first experience volunteering with the children with special needs in the year of 2008, Aleksandra has resolved that she is most happy and fulfilled working with the special needs youth population. She intends to continue gaining skills, experience, and expertise and ultimately furthering her education in graduate school.
Outside of work, Aleksandra enjoys spending time with her husband and the activities such as hiking, being out in nature and traveling.
