She founded Instructional ABA Consultants in June of 2012 with one core belief: every individual with a disability has the right to effective treatment regardless of their funding source.
Jessie has succeeded in creating an innovative community that reinforces effective ABA services across funding sources. She has learned that quality services come from quality staff focusing on enriching the lives of both the staff that support IABA and the individuals IABA supports. It is with great pleasure Jessie is able to oversee Instructional ABA Consultants. It is her life mission to bring quality ABA services to the underserved and to live in a world where having a disability does not mean to be disadvantaged.
