WHO ARE THESE CHICKS ANYWAYS?

Head Babe in Charge

Well, this has the potential to be awkward. Sure I could wax poetic for a few paragraphs and really up-sell my mediocre accomplishments to date but that would reek of desperation and no one likes a one-upper. When I am not saving you from the dreaded retest, you can find me drinking a seltzer or iced coffee (it just depends on the time of day), reading about a Bachelor in Paradise scandal, or making insta-stories with my dog, Pavlov (had to stay on brand).

About Liat

Liat completed her undergrad and graduate degree in Special Education at the University of Maryland before enrolling in FIT’s ABA Program. After graduation health sh** happened (#adultingproblems), and Liat found herself having to start from square one. So Liat’s background spans from special education classrooms to clinics to potty training in homes (Generalization-am I right?). Liat is passionate about sharing our science and making it accessible to anyone whether it regards needing to shape a friend’s post-breakup ice cream eating behavior or manipulating the environment to get a pal more likes on the gram. Basically, she takes the APPLIED part of our science very seriously.

About Casey

Meet Casey AKA The other Behavior Bitch. Casey came along early on in the creation of SNABA. She was Liat’s teacher’s pet and from the moment their eyes locked, Liat said, “You’re passing this test and coming to work with me” #LoveatFirstSight. That was it. Before she had the opportunity to think about it, Liat had already locked her in. When you find someone this passionate about ABA, you #lockitdown.

Casey went to University of New Hampshire for her undergrad and got her Master’s in Applied Behavior Analysis from Antioch University. Casey lives in the beautiful state of New Hampshire (ask her about her tattoo to show her devotion to this state). She has a “wicked” strong New England accent that we constantly correct her on, but nothing seems to help. You can find Casey floating along a river, ocean, pool, glacier, lake, swamp, or a puddle. If there is water, this girl will find it.

Casey is the nerdier of the two bitches. If there is an article, event, group, webinar, conference, or zoom, you can guarantee Casey will be there. If she isn’t there, call for help. This chick can be found drooling over experimental designs or laying in the sun reading Cooper.

Casey is the ying to Liat’s yang. Casey’s nerdiness mixed with Liat’s creativity is the glue behind what makes SNABA so special. When these girls teach together there is something unexplainably magical that happens. These girls will light up your world with #lightbulb moments. You have to be there to get it.

See ya in class. Love you. Mean it.

About Maggie

It all began with a random email….and the rest is (behavioral) history! Maggie reached out to the Bitches back in the day when she was the program chair for a Master’s Degree in Behavior Analysis in the Midwest. She knew SNABA was something special and her students NEEDED this fun, real, relatable connection to the material if they were going to not just pass the test but become badass behavior analysts. After writing some mocks together, recording a podcast, and a few down n dirty classes on the good stuff, it was clear this was the tribe she didn’t even know she needed. The connection became so much fun that she decided she just had to spend as much time as possible with the ladies and the amazing SNABA community (#MatchingLaw) and she joined the team full time!

Maggie is probably the nerdiest of the three and tends to rack up college degrees and certifications for fun (or maybe for extra TP if we ever have another pandemic rush). Her most recent academic accomplishments include a Ph.D. in I/O psychology, a graduate certificate in Organizational Behavior, and a graduate certificate in Online Teaching and Learning. Dissemination is her jam: she has worked in all four branches of behavior analysis, taught at several Universities, and practiced the science with pretty much every population you can imagine from trapeze artists to rescue pups to individuals struggling with addiction or obesity. She’s passionate about ABA being EVERYWHERE and can’t ever turn off her ABA brain or stop taking data. Seriously, she’s thinking about it at ALL times…yes, even then…
