Julianne started at Behavior Health Partners in December of 2017. She has been doing ABA therapy for almost 12 years and has a Bachelor’s of Science from Western Michigan University. Julianne is pursuing a Master’s degree in Applied Behavior Analysis with hopes of becoming a BCBA. What has kept her in this field for so long is not only getting to work with great kids and their families, but also getting to see the kid’s personalities develop more. When she is not working, she likes to spend time with her family and be outside as much as she can. She loves to play any type of board game and currently has not lost a game of Connect 4 in about 5 years.
Katie started with BHP in August of 2019. She graduated from Grand Valley State University with her B.S. in Psychology. When she’s not at work, she likes playing cards and board games, making mead with her boyfriend, working out, camping with her family and friends, and eating pizza. Katie’s favorite part of working as an RBT is seeing the kids grow and learn new skills. Watching them succeed at a target they have been working at, is the highlight of her day.
