Meet Jerusia

     Jerusia, the founder of Behavior Analysts of Naples. Her love for the Applied Behavior Analysis field began over 25 years ago, when she taught a 4-year-old, who had no verbal communication, to talk. While she loves helping clients, she takes pride in selecting and training the best Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) to serve our future generations as well; for Jerusia, a hands-on business model is imperative. Not only does she train future therapists, but she also gives direct consultation and regular client assessments.

     While Behavior Analysts of Naples has only been open since 2019, she held a private practice with multiple BCBA’s for over 6 years in Connecticut. After growing tired of the long winters, Jerusia and her husband moved to Naples to continue their business and to enjoy the local golf country clubs. When they aren’t traveling or spending time with their beloved Rottweilers Zoe and Zeus, you can find them playing at the Lely-Mustang Golf Country Club

Meet Daisy

     Daisy is one of our Registered Behavior Technicians, meaning that her main focus is working directly with clients to increase target skills while inputting data. While her current role is RBT, she is actively working towards board certification at Purdue University. Daisy graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University in 2018 and since her first psychology course, has been interested in helping those who have difficulty advocating for themselves. As an avid researcher, she is always trying to find new tools and skills to increase her administration of therapy, especially in the field of Applied Behavior Sciences; Daisy realizes that behavior analysis and treatment is not a one-size-fits-all.  

     In her senior year at Florida Gulf Coast University, she was awarded a prestigious internship where she travelled to Rome and lived there for an entire month. Working along five other students from schools like Harvard, John Hopkins, and Rutgers, she developed advanced assessment techniques to administer technical and holistic therapy to patients. Besides this experience and dabbling in graduate school for a couple months, Daisy has always lived in Naples, Florida. In true Floridian fashion, she loves going on walks, going to the beach, and reading a good book.

Meet Evangeline

Evangeline is another one of our Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs) and has been working with children for over five years. In her undergraduate degree, she focused on education and worked extensively in schools. During this time, she also volunteered as a Guardian ad Litem for the 20th judicial circuit, further solidifying her love for helping children and families.

Being born and raised in Port Charlotte, Evangeline has an affinity for the local beaches. Also, she enjoys running, crochet, singing, and collecting mugs (she currently has about 40!). Her long term goal is to shadow Jerusia and obtain her Board Certification, as well as travel the world!

Meet Yozeli

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Florida Gulf Coast University with my bachelors degree in psychology. At the start of my college career I discovered my passion for the field of psychology and helping people. In my last semester of undergrad I worked as an intern for Behavior Analysts of Naples and fell in love with ABA. I seen the way that ABA therapy is able to help people and I knew that I found a field that would allow me to fulfill my passion for helping others. 

 

I’ve lived in Labelle FL my whole life. I enjoy spending my time with family, listening to music, being outside, and watching a good movie. My long term goal is complete graduate school and earn my Board Certification.
