Grace Backhaus

Grace is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and holds a Masters degree in Education with a focus in Applied Behavior Analysis from the University of Washington. Her first exposure to ABA was while she was working towards her undergraduate degree in Business Management at Greenville University in Illinois. She began volunteering with a child diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and that experience led to the pursuit of a career working with similarly impacted children. Grace has worked in the home, school and community settings and has used ABA principles to help children develop communication, social and self-help skills. She strives to use her skillset to help each individual child attain their goals and provide support to help them reach their highest potential.

In her spare time, Grace enjoys traveling and spending quality time with friends and family. She also spends time reading, hiking local trails, listening to podcasts, and is currently pursuing her yoga teacher certification.
