A lifelong resident of central Indiana, Rob lives in Bloomington and provides positive behavioral support consultation to individuals with Autism Spectrum Disabilities in Indianapolis and surrounding areas, like Johnson County and Bloomington.
In 1987, shortly after graduating from Indiana University with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Education, Rob began supporting individuals on the spectrum as an assistant manager at a residential group home for adolescents with autism. Two years later, Rob transitioned to a special education classroom, working as a teaching assistant at North Central High School in Indianapolis. This was followed by a career shaping three-year position as a 24/7 live-in residential manager in a supported living program for a teenager with autism.
In 1993, with a firm commitment to support individuals with autism and their families, Rob began providing behavioral consultation services and also returned to Indiana University, receiving a Master’s degree in Special Education in 1995.
Rob was a founding member of the Indiana Association of Behavioral Consultants in 2001, is a member of the INABC Ethics Committee, and has served on the Executive Board as the association’s Treasurer for 18 of the past 20 years. Rob also serves on the Human Rights Committee for LifeDesigns in Bloomington, and when not working, he collects political buttons, brews beer, watches football and spends time at home with his wife, Janas.
With 34 years of experience in the field, 28 of these spent providing behavioral consulting services, Rob is happy to have been a part of the Insights Consulting team since 2007.
