Team Sherrel

Sherrel Hill, BCBA

After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Relations from Texas Tech University in 2010, Sherrel aspired to work for an organization passionately dedicated to its mission and values as well as serving a greater community. After completing her undergraduate degree, she began her career as a business communication instructor at Texas Tech University. Sherrel joined the Emerald Coast Autism Center (an immensely passionate group) in 2012 as a behavior therapist and moved into a supervisor position in 2014, after completing her coursework at Florida Institute of Technology and receiving her Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA) certification. She currently leads a team of registered behavior technicians (RBTs) who hustle daily to improve the quality of lives of those they serve. Committed to providing quality Applied Behavior Analysis services and professional growth, Sherrel enrolled in Ball State University’ s master’s degree program in applied behavior analysis. She will complete her master’s degree in 2018 and go on to sit for her Board Certified Behavior Analysis (BCBA) examination. Upon completing her certification, Sherrel plans to continue fostering her own team’s growth (therapists and clients) and pursue her own passion projects in Organizational Behavior Management.

"Have you ever worked for an ABA organization that cared about its staff as much as its clients? Well, I have. Emerald Coast Autism Center is not just a place to work, but is a community of professionals collaborating, learning, and growing alongside one another. This community starts at the top with two founders and leaders who genuinely care about the quality of services and work-life balance for its staff. In this environment, I have grown into the knowledgeable and ethical Board Certified Behavior Analyst I aspired to become."

"We are surrounded and supported in a culture that not only values the therapy that we provide to the children and their families, but also to the therapists themselves. Each and every member of the ECAC team from the CEO and CFO down to interns are there to support one another and create the most inclusive enviornment that we can thrive in. The positive enviornment creates strong therapists that provide the highest quality of therapy to our kiddos as no one is left to fend for themselves and everyone is there for another. I truly adore my ECAC family and so happy that I found a company that cares as much about its employees as the do their clients." -Courtney F.
