Mandi
Corporate Project Manager

Mandi’s 9-year career with University Pediatricians has been multifaceted. She has worked at The Children’s Hospital of Michigan in may different clinics, ultimately finding her passion working with the incredible staff at UPAC. Autism and ABA therapy were new to her but she hit the ground running and has been learning everything she can the last 2 years. She is currently pursuing a bachelor’s in Business Administration with hopes to bring her operational knowledge and drive to UPAC. Seeing the changes in the kiddos the clinical team work with on a daily basis is amazing but as a mom herself, seeing the parents reaction to the progress their children have made is the reason she loves working at the autism center.
