Tim Courtney, BCBA
Tim Courtney is foremost a behavior analyst who is passionate about the science of human behavior. His journey began with a chance meeting with a friend who explained his career as a behavior analyst. Tim was instantly intrigued, as this role was well aligned with his value for effective intervention. Highly motivated, he then quickly completed the coursework requirements to get his Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst® (BCaBA®) certification. Shortly thereafter, Tim enrolled in the Master of Applied Behavior Analysis program at Florida Institute of Technology and acquired his BCBA. He had the amazing opportunity to work in several diverse settings: public schools, residential programs, center-based programs, and in private and group homes. Tim loved doing clinical work, and he found his calling when he shifted to operations and the system-wide performance of LittleStar. As a result, Tim’s research focus became the practice of behavior analysis — such as how to work with insurance companies — as well as management, supervision and leadership. Right now he’s working on his PhD in Leadership at Benedictine University.
When Tim is not working or engaged in work-related reading, he is active in CrossFit and Brazilian jiu-jitsu and enjoys spending time with his wife, three children, grandchildren and two wonderful labradoodles.
