Learning Center Experience
Theresa Turner grew up
in Boutte, Louisiana. She graduated from high school in 1978 and spent the next
30 years working in various trades, including many years as a seamstress, while
raising her three daughters. “The sewing industry went through a lot of changes,
with factories closing and work being sent overseas,” said Theresa.
Theresa decided to
make a change herself. She was doing some volunteer work with a local nonprofit.
“I did some facilitating at Total Community Action to help young single
mothers, single fathers, and married couples. They loved me and how I helped
them. So, I decided to get some formal learning and teaching skills.”
Theresa enrolled at
Kaplan University in 2009 to pursue a bachelor’s degree in psychology. “One of
the main reasons I decided to go to Kaplan University was the convenience of
not having to go sit in a classroom because I had to work. Another reason was I
loved giving advice to people, helping them with decisions and other problems
they were having.”
She graduated from
Kaplan University with honors in May 2013 and was soon hired by Butterfly
Effects as an ABA Therapist. Established in 2005, Butterfly Effects is
one of the nation’s leading providers of individually tailored community-based applied
behavior analysis therapy services for all ages of individuals with autism and
other related disabilities.
Theresa is continuing
with her education at Kaplan University. She is scheduled to earn her Master of
Science in Psychology with a concentration in addictions in 2016. In her spare
time, she volunteers as a patient liaison at Children’s Hospital in New Orleans,
working with sexually abused children. Theresa plans to earn her counselor
license and potentially pursue a doctoral degree in early childhood education.
