CEO & BCBA
Originally from Columbus, Ohio, Jessie Cooper attended The Ohio State University where she studied Early Childhood Development and Human Ecology. She continued her education at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology and earned a Master’s in Applied Behavior Analysis.
Jessie says she has always had a love of child development. As an undergraduate student, she worked at a preschool and saw firsthand how underserved autistic students were. Jessie is most passionate about closing the funding gap for services and creating whole-hearted, sustainable organizations.
Some of Jessie’s personal interests are blogging and writing, working on her farm, and spending time with her sons.
“The best part about being a part of IABA is my brave employees that bring their best self to work every day with compassion and grace.”
