We have amazing therapists at LLA and want to showcase them to you! This week, meet Mekenzie Benson!

Mekenzie is a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) who has been with LLA for five months. She serves clients in our Fairlawn office. She chose to become a therapist solely to make a positive difference in someone’s life. Her days for the past 5 months have consisted of working 1 on 1 with amazing children on the autism spectrum, teaching them many different skills.
