Jasmine (she/her) is a neurodivergent BCBA in Northwest Arkansas. In 2015, Jasmine graduated with a B.A. in
Psychology from Hendrix College. While at Hendrix, Jasmine fell in love with the science of behavior analysis
during then went on to attend the University of Arkansas, where she received an M.Ed in Special Education with
an emphasis in ABA.
Jasmine worked her first few years in the field at a non-profit serving early intervention clients in their homes.
She then went on to work at an ABA clinic, where she eventually became a clinical director, before leaving the
field for a year due to severe burnout. During her time away, she reflected on her experiences with common ABA
practices and began learning more about neurodiversity-affirming practices, which she is passionate about.
During this time away she also reflected on current service models and businesses practices. Once she decided
she wasn't leaving the field for good, Jasmine knew her calling was to share her story of workplace exploitation
and mentor BCBAs going through burnout, as well as to show other practitioners how ABA can be neurodiversity
Jasmine also runs a page on Instagram called @theabalady, where she shares insights on a variety of important
ABA topics. Some of her interests include RBT advocacy, toilet training, and mental health and wellness for ABA
practitioners. Jasmine loves working with BCBAs who are looking for community, who are ready to challenge the
norm, and who value personal and clinical growth.
