Channeling Joanna Gaines through my home updates, spending time with my family, and living vicariously through Pinterest posts while simultaneously planning my family’s next adventure(s)!
Born and raised in Michigan. I made my way to Miami after a detour to Montana for Graduate school and Peace Corps service in Azerbaijan.
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!
