Joceyln - Registered Behavior Technician

Joceyln

Registered Behavior Technician

Jocelyn was born in northern New Jersey, but was raised and currently resides in Greensboro, NC. She received her Associate degree in Fine Arts with a concentration in Drama as well as a diploma in Cosmetology from Guilford Technical Community College. Originally, her goal was to work as a stage makeup artist, as well as stage manager, so she followed that dream and worked on several productions in her community and schools. Jocelyn went on to complete her Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre and Dance from North Carolina Central University in Durham, NC. Though she is still involved in theatre and enjoys doing productions, Jocelyn found her real passion is working with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). While completing her AFA, a friend recommended that she apply to be a Habilitation Technician and the rest is history. Jocelyn has been working with children with ASD and IDD for over 6 years with most of her experience being in-home and one on one.

After a couple of years as a Habilitation Technician, Jocelyn was introduced to the field of ABA while she and her husband were temporarily living in Virginia. She became a Behavior Specialist and loved the field so much she decided to pursue a career in ABA. This great therapist received her Registered Behavior Technician certification in July of 2018 and is currently enrolled at Purdue University Global to obtain a Master of Science degree in Psychology with a concentration in Applied Behavior Analysis with the goal of becoming a BCBA. She is excited about her journey in the field of ABA and is very passionate about the success of her clients.

In her free time, Jocelyn likes to knit/crochet, watch TV, read, and bake. She is also a wedding/event planner and loves putting on the best, most beautiful events possible on anyone’s budget. She enjoys being organized and responsible but lighthearted and joyful at the same time. Her favorite thing to do after a long day at work is to cuddle on the couch with her husband and furry baby, Khloe, and watch a movie.
