Payton is a Registered Behavior Technician credentialed through the Behavior Analyst Certification Board. She has her certificate in Early Childhood Education from Des Moines Area Community College. She has always had a passion to work with children as she loves to see their minds grow. In the summer you can find Payton on the water kayaking or boating with friends, but in the winter, you’ll find her on the couch under a blanket. In her free time, she likes to spend time with friends and family, cook with her boyfriend, and play with her cat (Splat) and her puppy (Walter). Payton is excited to grow and learn with the Axis family and to make a difference for others.
