About the Founder & CEO
Lisa Kowalski, M.A., BCBA began her career in helping those with special needs while obtaining her bachelor’s degree in Psychology at The Pennsylvania State University. As a behavior & education therapist, Lisa provided direct therapy as well as social skills training for students with autism which guided her to obtain a masters degree in Applied Behavior Analysis. While pursing her masters she continued her work as a therapist and continued to gain more knowledge and expertise that laid the ground work for future consultation. Lisa became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst in 2005. Since that time Lisa continues to provide consultation services and well as supervision for BCBAs in training and continues to attend various workshops and trainings to further her knowledge and education in special needs services.
