Jill graduated from Trinity College, Wales with her Bachelor’s in Special Education and Sports in 2002, and from Ball State University in 2018 with her Master’s in Applied Behavior Analysis. She is a Board Certified Behavior Analysis. Jill has been in the field of special education for over 20 years and has had the unique opportunity to travel to several countries working in the field. This experience has enabled her to encounter many individuals in the field of special education whose passion and knowledge have been priceless to Jill’s determination to improve the lives of those with disabilities. Over the years Jill has worked with individuals of all ages and abilities with various needs; and it was this experience that supported her desire to focus on applying applied behavior analysis.
Growing up in Ireland, Jill saw the limited opportunities available to those with disabilities. From having to stay upstairs while her mum taught adults to read in the evenings or running past the special school set up out of town for individuals with various forms and levels of disabilities; Jill’s passion began. Now, years later, having moved back to the Kansas City area, Jill’s journey is only just beginning, and she couldn’t be happier for it to be continued with BHKC.
