BIOGRAPHY

Whitney Graham developed a love for ABA as an undergraduate at Michigan State University working in the Autism Lab under a brilliant professor who happened to also be a BCBA-D.  She volunteered in the Autism Lab for two years.  After she graduated from Michigan State, she spent a summer in New York working at a summer camp for adults and children with various developmental disabilities.  She moved to Montana to begin her first master’s program and while she was there she worked as a direct care provider for adults with traumatic brain injuries living in a group home. Her master’s degree incorporated Peace Corps service so when she was done in Montana she joined the Peace Corps as a youth development volunteer.  While abroad she pursued an additional master’s degree in ABA to ensure continued work in a field she was passionate about upon return to the U.S. and she hasn’t looked back since!
