Behavior Support Staff

Anum has always been intrigued with the study of emotions, cognition, and the development of human beings. After earning her Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Bowie State University, she had a desire to work with individuals especially those with mental differences.

She has worked with the elderly and has volunteered as a community advocate for family and youth. Ms. Akhtar plans to advance her degree and become certified in mental health counseling. Anum said that being apart of the BDS team has given her an opportunity to help individuals become more independent in their everyday life. She went on to say, “It is very fulfilling for me to see my clients overcome challenges and master new concepts.”
