The BCI Mission and what it means to me

I am extremely honored and humbled to be a part of an agency whose daily operations radiate the pillars of their mission to work with compassion, excellence, integrity and professionalism. My goal is to contribute through my work with BCI sound dissemination of Behavior Analysis to rural and underserved areas.
