Madeline Fricke

Hi there, I am Madeline Fricke! I am currently an undergraduate student at Texas Tech University! I plan to start my masters in Applied Behavior Analysis this Fall. During my time at Texas Tech, I have had the pleasure of being involved in Presidents Select and Kappa Alpha Theta sorority. My deep love and commitment to individuals in the spectrum has grown through my time working as a registered behavior technician and research assistant at the Burkhart Center for Autism Education and Research, has provided me with essential training that is crucial for understanding and supporting individuals with autism.

Eva Ceja

Hi! My name is Eva and I wanted to make sure you got to know me a little bit before the program, so here are a few things to know about me. I’m a Lubbock native and attended Lubbock High where I played #1 doubles and singles. I continued my tennis career at Kenyon College in Gambier, OH from 2006-2010. While in college, I spent my summers coaching tennis at the John Newcombe Tennis Ranch in New Braunfels. Newks is where I developed my love for teaching. Working with past participants and watching them grow and develop has been such a joy. I love to see the smile on their faces as they accomplish new skills. My goal is for everyone to have fun as they learn. I’m looking forward to another great session and looking forward to seeing new and returning faces!
