  • Intensive training in behavior issues
  • Research-backed solutions
  • Ability to adjust solutions to your child and your family’s unique situation


Jamie founded Behave Your Best in 2011 when she realized that her experience in behavior analysis enabled her to parent with skills not every parent had access to. Her background uniquely positions her to train parents with the tools to parent effectively and without drama.

Watching her skills work in real time at home as well as in the lives of the many families she serves sparked a passion in Jamie to empower this generation of parents. She wants to see parents develop behavioral parenting strategies so they can overcome “normal” unwanted behavior before it gets “bad enough” to warrant further intervention. Jamie believes that with the right tools, all parents can enjoy their child’s behavior!
