TUCCi’s Newest BCBA
Tucci Learning Solutions is excited to introduce Jessie Wang as our newest Behavior Analyst. Jessie recently passed the BCBA certification exam.
Jessie began her employment with our organization on June 18th, 2018 as a Behavior Analyst in Training doing direct service and learning about instruction using the CLM.
She is originally from China. She came to the United States four years ago and graduated from Southern Illinois University in May 2018 with an MA in Applied Behavior Analysis. She moved to California shortly after graduation and swiftly began employment with us in the Monterey region.
Jessie started in this field working with children in clinical setting. She is experienced in implementing district trial training to young children. With continued learning and practice deeper in school and home settings, she is amazed by how broadly behavioral principles and teaching technologies can help to serve the families in need. In leisure time, she likes reading ABA and more non-ABA materials, traveling and making friends.
We are very excited for Jessie for this achievement and look forward to her working as a BCBA with her TUCCi colleagues.
