Lisa Espinoza has been an advocate for children and families effected by autism for over 10 years. She was a catalyst to initiating the Michigan autism insurance legislation initiative, partnering with other families to start the grassroots movement Autism Insurance for Michigan (AIM). Through this process she developed relationships with legislators, universities, lobbyists, and autism support organizations. Since that time, Lisa has supported the Autism Alliance of Michigan on various projects. She is also completing the curriculum and practicum required to test for the Board Certified Behavior Analyst credential (BCBA). She works with children and young adults with autism implementing Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) programming. Lisa is currently employed by the State of Michigan. She is married and the mother of 5 children and her 17-year old son, Logan, has autism. She has gotten to experience the direct benefits of ABA through programming with her son, which was instrumental to her pursuing a full-time career implementing ABA therapy to individuals with autism and other disabilities.
