I have worked with adults and children of all age ranges with developmental disabilities and a wide range of mental health diagnoses. I have provided behavior analytic services and educational consultation in both home and community settings, social skills groups, public schools, private schools, day treatment facilities, and residential treatment programs.
I fell into my passion for Applied Behavior Analysis in 2002, as I watched friendships form using the science of ABA, and am grateful to be able to continually see that the human capacity to learn can always soar above and beyond expectation with the right intervention in place, and appreciate having the tools of science to demonstrate that.
It is my belief that the science of ABA can be used to move toward autonomous meaningful lives filled with both quality and happiness for our clients.
Outside of work, I love yoga, watching gymnastics, being outdoors, weightlifting and cooking. My favorite color tends to change with my mood, and today it’s green!

Hola! My name is Jennifer Biggers and I am a bilingual Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA) fluent in Spanish.
I earned my bachelor’s degree in Spanish, and immediately joined Teach For America where I taught Kindergarten in a Spanish Immersion classroom and earned part of my Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education. Shortly after, I stumbled upon the field of ABA and have not looked back! I initially entered the ABA field to work alongside SLPs, but discovered my true passion is with ABA and not only observing a child’s growth in all areas, but analyzing the data to show it!
My commitment is to serve Spanish speaking families in their native language serving multiple populations as well and providing thorough parent training, which in turn helps the whole team!
I currently live in Denver, but I’m originally from Seattle, Washington. I’m a total foodie, so you can usually catch me and my husband, Patrick, and our mini golden-doodle, Olive, out at our favorite restaurants. We are Seattle Mariners fan and root for our college football team, University of Alabama - ROLL TIDE! I enjoy traveling and have visited over 26 different countries! Did I mention my favorite color is purple?
