We sat down with this month’s Gold Star winner Jennifer Gruber to discover what drives her as a Behavior Analyst, what she likes about working for Golden Care Therapy. and what her day-to-day looks like

 

 

 

Tell us a bit about your job as a BCBA.

I love my job! It is the best feeling in the world when a child learns a skill that helps them become more independent. I love being able to break down activities for learners to be as successful as possible. 

How has Golden Care helped you in your career development?

Golden Care works with the nicest and most supportive families. The culture is success oriented for the learner and every employee is supported to continue learning and becoming better as professionals. 

What drew you to Golden Care originally?

With Golden Care, I know that I am valued as an employee. The office and clinical team are always accessible and, as a result, any questions or concerns are resolved quickly. I prefer to deal with a smaller office with a more personal feeling. This has not changed in my time with the company. 

What is the favorite part of your work as a BCBA/working for Golden Care?

It keeps me young! Playing while learning is not only effective for children, but it keeps your own minds active while having fun. Play is serious business. 

What does the day to day of your job look like?

I am a full time special education teacher, so my BCBA job starts in the afternoons. I am so lucky to see most of my clients and their amazing therapists after school and still be home in time to have a quiet relaxing evening. My time with Golden Care is spent modeling programs, training therapists, teaching new skills to parents, and working with some amazing kids.
