“Nothing is impossible…the word itself says ‘I’m possible.’ ”

Shana Williams goes to work every day to teach others, but on most days, leaves work having been taught valuable lessons by those she serves—which to Shana is the most wonderful part of her job. She reflects, “Watching people grow and develop life-changing skills is an amazing feeling, especially looking back and seeing how far they have come.”

Shana started as a behavioral therapist, and quickly grew to love the field of Applied Behavior Analysis, which drove her desire to earn her master’s degree and BCBA. After being a supervisor in the Santa Clarita office for many years, Shana became the director of the Santa Barbara office.

When not at work, Shana enjoys hanging out with friends and her two pups in the little beach town where she lives.
