NAPW honors Jacqueline Beug, M.A., BCBA, LBA, as a 2014 Professional Woman of the Year. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in mental health. As the largest organization of women in the country, spanning virtually every industry and profession, the National Association of Professional Women is a networking community with over 600,000 members and nearly 400 Local Chapters.
“As a behavior analyst, I work with children on the Autism Spectrum and with adults with intellectual disabilities,” explains Mrs. Beug, a board certified behavior analyst (BCBA) and a licensed behavior analyst (LBA).
Mrs. Beug, owner of Beug Behavioral Intervention & Consulting Services, Inc. (BBICS), said she became interested in applied behavior analysis (ABA), while studying psychology in college. “I’ve always been interested in psychology and decided to major in ABA after completing some of my required field work in the area,” she says.
As a behavior analyst, Mrs. Beug provides creative solutions that reinforce positive behaviors, helping individuals with their academic, social and communication skills and adaptive daily living skills. The mission of BBICS is “to provide a helping hand to families, caretakers, and providers who need behavioral assistance with individuals who have intellectual disabilities.” Mrs. Beug and her staff of 16 work with children and adults, in school districts and privately. “It can be challenging. We work with many individuals who are highly aggressive and unable to communicate,” she says. “We handle a lot of private cases and we also have many state contracts, as well.” In the future, Mrs. Beug hopes to expand BBICS and the services she offers to help improve the quality of life of those who need it most.
