Jailyn VanSickle

Jailyn has a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Western Washington University. She became an RBT in 2015 while working towards her Bachelor’s. After working as an RBT she quickly realized she did not want to pursue a career as a Speech Pathologist and wanted to become a BCBA. She attended Arizona State University to receive her Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction of Applied Behavior Analysis. Jailyn received her BCBA in February of 2019. Her largest area of interest within the field of ABA is caregiver training. Building relationships with families and learning how she can best serve each individual family is her favorite part of what we do. In her free time you can catch Jailyn snuggling with her cat, exploring all of the great walking trails Whatcom County has to offer, or attending any Seattle sporting event (Go M’s & Hawks!).

She enjoys spending time with her family and appreciating the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Jane has a passion for advocating for her clients and helping them grow and succeed.
