Welcome Courtney Whitcraft – BCaBA in Monterey region

There’s a new (to TUCCi) BCaBA in the house!

Tucci Learning Solutions is excited to welcome Courtney Whitcraft, BCaBA to Team TUCCi. We are very pleased that Courtney decided to move from the land of 10,000 lakes and is settling in California.

Hello!

I am Courtney Whitcraft. I just moved to Monterey from St. Paul, Minnesota.

Ever since I was a child (once I visited my aunt in Cardiff at 9 years old) I’ve wanted to live in California. I have a cousin I visited several times in Pacific Grove, have loved my time here, and decided now is the best time to have a new adventure.

I’ve been in the behavior intervention field most of my career. I went to college in Wisconsin, started working with adults with disabilities and discovered “behavior modification” (I taught a young non-verbal woman to sign and noticed it drastically reduced her aggressive behavior). I decided this behavior modification thing was really great if it can help people live their best functional life, and found a job at an ABA center. I did online schooling at Southern Illinois for the sequence courses and received my BCABA certification in August 2006. I’ve worked in centers, in-home, schools (elementary and high school), group work, individual work, family skills, social skills. I’ve worked with various programs and curriculum (Lovaas, verbal behavior, fluency, Early Start, ABLLS to name a few). I am also trauma informed.

I am an introvert, with a dash of extrovert. I enjoy hiking, backpacking, meditation & mindfulness, reading, hanging with my 2 cats, live music, vinyl, paranormal investigations, energy work, exploring, new adventures, & relaxing at a beach or pool.

I’m excited to be here at TUCCi and in California!

In Gratitude,

Courtney

Thanks for being a new member of Team TUCCi Courtney!
