Founder/Executive Director/BCBA-D

Christen Russell

As the founder and Executive Director of Affecting Behavior Change, LLC., I created ABC from my passion and commitment to education, diversity, equity, inclusion, justice, and belonging, ethical behavior and decision-making, behavior analysis, and continual personal and professional growth. I take a lifelong learner approach to systematically fill the gaps in areas of continuing education, professional development, and research. As an ACE coordinator, I have created over 40 continuing education events. As a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, my clinical experience focuses on quality assurance, compliance, clinical support, business development and growth. I also work closely with leadership and management divisions on compliance, training and delivery of sound, ethical and effective behavioral supports to achieve client goals. I have established and assisted with the startup, and/or growth and development of four agencies providing ABA services. I have consulted with health care agencies, providing services to 100s of staff, including BCBAs, BCaBAs, RBTs, executive, administrative, clinical and operations staff. I have provided consultation to teachers, parents, business owners and staff. I have my PhD in Applied Behavior Analysis from Endicott College. I have my Master of Science in Psychology with a specialization in Applied Behavior Analysis. With a focus on supervision, staffing, recruitment, training, strategic planning, and working in the field for over 20 years, I have a broad spectrum of clinical expertise.
