Meet Your Consultant

Jamie Waldvogel - Headshots-0022

Each Consultant is uniquely trained in the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Our expertise is in all things behavior! If we can see the behavior, we can help! Your Consultant first establishes the effectiveness of our strategies with your child through demonstration, then coaches you to implement the strategies with your child.

JAMIE WALDVOGEL, MS, BCBA, FOUNDER/OWNER, BEHAVIORAL CONSULTANT

I attended the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, where I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology, with an emphasis in Behavior Analysis in 2001. I later obtained my Master of Science degree in Behavior Analysis and Therapy from Southern Illinois University in 2005. I have practiced behavior analysis for the past 17 years, improving the lives of adults with Acquired Brain Injuries and children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. I have experience training parents to implement behavioral strategies in their everyday interactions with their children. After becoming a mother, I realized the need to share behavior analytic strategies with other mothers of typically developing children and began Behave Your Best, LLC in September 2011. I live in the north metro with my husband and two sons.  Contact me at jamie@behaveyourbest.com

ERIN COTE, PhD, BEHAVIORAL CONSULTANT

My lifelong passion for working with children and families shaped my educational and career choices. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in 2004 at Western New England University. This is where I started developing my interest in behavior analysis. Following college, I returned to my home state of Minnesota to pursue graduate study in behavior analysis and earned a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from the University of Minnesota in 2009. I have spent my work career both working directly with children and coaching families to use behavior analysis to promoting lasting and quality of life changes. I have over 14 years of experience working with diverse clients and find myself living these strategies every day as a wrangle (I mean raise) my own three children. My husband and I and our children live in the southwest metro. I am very excited to be joining the Behave Your Best team in November 2016. Contact me at erin@behaveyourbest.com
