Gracie Simonett was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In 2015 she received her BA in film from DePaul University in Chicago. Her passion for kids has always been present since taking care of her many younger cousins. While living in Los Angeles, Gracie has worked as a Behavior Therapist at In STEPPS, a behavioral therapy company working with kids who have autism. Here she found her passion for behavioral science and working 1:1 with children on the autism spectrum. She tries to tell everyone she meets about In STEPPS and the wonderful work they do. Gracie has worked at CWC Hollywood both in the after-school program and now as a 2nd grade TA and she couldn’t be happier to be back in the CWC family!
