Clark County Clinical Supervisor
Cassey has been working in the field of ABA since 2009 doing direct intervention. She graduated with her Bachelors in Human Development from Washington State University Vancouver campus in 2007. Shortly after, she moved with her family to Olympia. In 2011, Cassey went on to pursue her Masters in Psychology and received her degree from Kaplan in 2013; passing her BCBA exam in 2016.
Cassey has experience working with nonvocal children and programming different AAC devices. She has worked with highly aggressive kiddos as well as high functioning children. Cassey has also worked with feeding disorders and PICA. Some of the other things that she has been involved in since becoming a BCBA: presenting to the Vancouver Family Law section where she presented to local Commissioners, Judges and Lawyers about Autism and the different aspects they should look for when planning out parenting plans as well as educating them on autism. She has also provided CE’s for teachers in behavior modifications that would benefit the classrooms as well as a 7 week parent training course.
One of the reasons she has been interested in this field is that her son was diagnosed in 1996 with classic autism. Watching him struggle through some of the most basic things as well as grow as he got older has been her passion. Her son is now serving in the Military as a United States Marine. In her spare time, she spends time with her husband, daughter while traveling up to Olympia to visit her other son.
