Executive Director: Kimberly Benjamin Hoppin, MA, MS, ABD, BCBA

Kim began her career as a behavior technician, implementing programming within the home and community settings. She completed a Master of Arts (MA) in Teaching with a specialization in applied behavior analysis (ABA) as well as her board certification as a behavior analyst in 2012. She continued her education with The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, completing a Master of Science (MS) in ABA and is currently finishing her PhD in Psychology with an emphasis in ABA.

Upon completion of her MA and BCBA, Kim worked her way up to clinical director for various large agencies in California.
