Regional Administrative DIRECTOR:

Michelle Abott

Before joining Proud Moments, I worked as regional director for a facility that helped women struggling with infertility. I also worked in the dialysis industry as regional director in a renal care facility.  Proud Moments serves another population that tugs at my heartstrings.  Working here fills me with hope!


How I Lead:


My Favorite Slogan: The Proud Moments slogan: “I can, I will, watch me”. That tagline really struck something inside of me from the very first time I saw it!


My Skills: Passionate, dependable and persistent!

My Role Model: My mother is my biggest inspiration. As a director in a state agency, she taught me to show up and be there for my team.


My Pride: The new Rockville office! Watching it go from design through construction to fruition is amazing.


A Peek Inside

I chose Proud Moments instead of another ABA agency for many reasons. More hands-on, helping kids outside of home and integrate into the community- this was very important to me. No other company has ever done that! From cutting her hair and going to the supermarket to collaborating with her school, you’ve helped in so many different areas. 

It’s been such a wonderful experience. Our BCBA sent us videos about sign language and how to communicate and has given us other important information. He is a life changing person and has influenced our whole family. My husband now talks to her like she is our daughter instead of always feeling sorry for her. 

My daughter has grown so much. Her doctor said she won’t be able to ride a bicycle because she won’t have balance, but she rides a bicycle! And I’ve really grown as a mom. I will have a life-long appreciation for what you guys have done for me.
