We are pleased to introduce Janee Franklin as the March Staff Spotlight. Janee is originally from Detroit, Michigan. She grew up with her mom, dad, and sister in a small town near at the central California coast in Nipomo (near Pismo).
Janee joined the Autism and Behavior Intervention (ABI) team at the Fresno Center four months ago, as a Behavior Technician. We are extremely proud of her for recently passing a board exam and is now serving as a board certified Registered Behavior Technician (RBT). As an RBT, Janee is responsible for directly implementing behavior interventions with our clients (under the supervision of our BCBA managers).
Janee’s work involves providing center-based, in-home, and/or community-based behavior intervention services to children and teens on the autism spectrum. Her continual desire to learn and her genuine understanding of the needs of the children she serves, are making a significant impact in improving their lives.
Keeping an open mind is key for Janee. She is mindful that everyone comes from different backgrounds and is passionate about fully accepting others for who they are. She finds these insights helpful in highlighting her clients’ unique qualities. Janee always tries to find the most positive attributes in the people she engages with through her work. She shared, “being able to work hands-on with the kids and teens we serve is the best part of my job. I love to help and be a support system for others. I love that I get to do both of those things every day.”
“Janee shows a solid understanding of behavior analysis and provides her clients with a positive learning environment. Quickly building rapport with her clients and establishing a professional relationship with their family and care-givers, truly shows her genuine interest in making a positive impact in her clients’ lives.” – Mark Adams, Clinical Manager Behavior Analyst
“Janee is a quick learner and has great ideas when developing stimuli for clients. She is an active participant and a valuable team member for our team. Thank you for the work you do Janee, know that you are making a difference!” – Ka Thao, Program Supervisor
