MA, BCBA, LBA
Ever since she was 5 years old, Tess had a desire to help the special needs population. Tess did not know how exactly she was going to fulfill her desire until she took a behavior psychology class at Montana State University. From there, Tess was hooked.
During Tess's undergraduate years she worked with various families and continued to fall in love with the students. Tess's professor from the behavioral class convinced her to further her education so she moved to Chicago where she got her Masters of Arts in Applied Behavior Analysis. From all that Tess has learned from the students to professors is that no matter how good the lesson is we must take our cues from the student and teach so the student can demonstrate that he or she is learning. If that means changing a program then that is what needs to be done to create the most success from the student. Tess has been with APPLE since October of 2014.
