Social Skill Coordinator/ Registered Behavior Technician: Marcayla Allen was born and raised in a small town north of Houston. From there, she went on to study at University of Houston and then transferred to Sam Houston State University to pursue a Bachelors of Art degree in Victim Studies. Her plans were always to work with children in the system, however in the short few months she’s been with Rise, she quickly found herself amazed at the work being done and progress made for the kids in the clinic. She is currently pursuing her Registered Behavioral Therapist license to improve her skills with the kiddos she works with. In her free time, Marcayla enjoys hiking, camping and photography.
