Ms Jennifer A. Smith

Goodwill Ambassador  (Washington DC)
Ms Jennifer A. Smith M.Ed., BCBA, LBA
Joy, Love and Laughter are the words that come to mind when you meet this dynamic young woman. Jennifer is known as someone who, when she sets her mind to do something, there is no stopping this force of nature. Her approach to life comes with her unique sense of good humour which lights up any room she enters. Jennifer is a successful business owner and mother of two with a passion for helping others. Founder of Behavioral Consulting Services, Inc., a therapy practice  (est 2008), providing in-home therapy to children with autism spectrum disorders.  Inspired by her daughter Claire who advocated for a kindness club in her elementary school Jennifer joined WKUSA to  encourage adults in her community to heal current cultural divisions with kindness. While primarily helping those with special needs, she is excited to marry the science of behavior analysis to the application of kindness in communities. Knowing this we connected her with another one of our Founding Members, Kindness.org to be a “Citizen Scientist” collaborating on the first school study of staff kindness perceptions in schools. Jennifer received her Master’s degree in Special Education/Severe Disabilities (2010) at Johns Hopkins University.  Jenn received a B.S. in Psychology from George Mason University (2004) and obtained a graduate certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis from Penn State University (2009).  Jennifer has been practicing in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) since 2001 and is a licensed behavior analyst in Virginia. Begnning her career as an ABA therapist she became a board certified associate behavior analyst (BCaBA) in 2007. Jennifer received her certification as a board certified behavior analyst (BCBA) in 2011. Whether practicing in her field, or seeking to inspire others, she believes kindness is essential to human happiness and survival.  Favorite Quote  “In order to carry a positive action we must develop here a positive vision.”  – Dalai Lama. Its an absolute pleasure to have Jennifer and her businesses on board as Founding Members to World Kindness USA, which are already providing a tremendous value add to the national campaign and to the Kindness Brains Trust. email info@worldkindnessusa.org
