I am a dreamer, and I strive to use my skills to impact the world in a positive way. More technically, I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), and Master IEP coach residing in Saint Clairsville, Ohio. I have worked with individuals with autism, intellectual & developmental disabilities, and mental health diagnoses for the past 12 years.
Prior to opening Valley Behavioral Health, I served as the Autism Director & Program Director for a large behavioral health organization. In that role, I realized the need for a small, local provider focused on quality of services for this community.
I have perviously served as the project manager for a grant-funded program to develop a better system of treatment and support for individuals with autism in Pennsylvania, where I lead the design, development, and implementation of this program. I have also served on the Executive Council for the Pennsylvania Association of Behavior Analysis (PennABA).
I am striving for the dissemination of effective treatments for individuals in need in the Ohio Valley. I hope to educate parents and community members in order to provide the best support to the growing population of individuals with autism and related needs.
In my free time, I love spending time with my family, learning, and enjoying the outdoors.
Hi, I’m Jamie Coffield and I’m the Office Manager at Valley Behavioral Health. I manage the day to day operations as well as scheduling, billing, and coordinating insurance benefits for clients.
My education is in nursing with a background in business management. I am a very passionate, ambitious, self motivated person.
I have 2 beautiful boys who are my entire world! I am passionate about organization, helping people, improving quality of life, learning, team building and professional development.
VBH has given me the opportunity to utilize my skills, make a difference and be a part of an amazing team. When I’m not at VBH I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking and shopping!
I graduated from Wheeling Jesuit University in 2018 with an undergraduate degree in Psychology. Throughout college I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I ended up switching my major from biology to psychology, and had enough credits to minor in both biology and chemistry! My senior year I completed an internship in the field of ABA. This internship sparked my interest in learning more about what exactly a career in behavior analysis would entail. I looked at several programs, but Penn State’s online option was the best fit for me. I was able to gain experience hours working in the field, as well as complete my degree at the same.
In 2019 I received my masters degree in Special Education, with an emphasis in Applied Behavior Analysis. Even then, my learning wasn’t (and still isn’t) over. I had to complete my experience hours, learning how to become a BCBA through studying terminology, directly working with clients, and learning all I could from Jackie. I passed my BCBA exam in November 2020.
When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my family, cuddling my cat Oliver, and drinking waaay too much coffee. I am an extremely organized and determined individual. I also love to learn, which makes me believe the field of behavior analysis is where I’m meant to be – it is always changing, and there are always opportunities to learn something new!
