Team Kim

Kim Duvall, BCBA 

Kim joined the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) in 2011 by working with children on the Autism Spectrum at a small facility in her neighborhood that has since expanded in the Southeast. Discovering that ABA was her passion, she has continued to advance and ultimately gained her master's level certification as a Behavior Analyst in 2016. She has continually built upon her knowledge base by gleaning from others and by seeing the principles of ABA at work daily. Kim has experience working in a variety of settings: clinic, school, and home. She uses humorous and energetic approach to build rapport with clients and joins in their interests. 
Kim is a Florida Panhandle native and graduated from the University of West Florida, gaining her bachelor's in General and Special Education (2014) and her master's in Special Education (2016). Kim enjoys the outdoors, particularly hiking and camping. Kim also enjoys reading, watching movies, and listening to various styles of music. 

"I am approaching a decade within the ABA field and find that I love the specialty of Autism more every year. I have found purpose in this work and find joy in serving my children and their families. It is an honor being at ECAC working alongside such gifted and passionate people." - Kim

"When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change." You go to work thinking you are going to teach, when in reality, these awesome kiddos are the ones that teach you. It is the best feeling getting into their world and seeing life through their eyes each day. 🌼 I am so thankful to have the opportunity to be part of ECAC."
