Agata Midgett | BCBA
I was born in Poland and moved to Destin, FL when I was 10 years old. I attended Fort Walton Beach High School where I graduated with honors. I went on to University of South Florida in Tampa, FL and perused a Bachelors in Public Health, followed by a Masters in Public Health with a concentration in Health Education. I started working in the field of ABA as a therapist in 2012 at Butterfly effects in Tampa, FL while earning my masters. Upon grad school I moved to San Diego, CA where I worked at Autism Spectrum Therapies for a year as aba therapist and later was promoted to a program supervisor. I also earned my supervision hours while at AST. I went back to school to earn my second Masters in Special Education with a concentration in ABA at Ball State University. I graduated in 2016. After about 2 years of living in California, my husband and I decided to move back to Florida to be closer to family since we were staring a family of our own. I worked for another two ABA companies both as a therapist and program supervisor while in Florida. I became a BCBA in February of 2018 after working and learning the field of ABA for 6 years. I moved to Huntsville area in February of 2018, and started working for MBT in August of 2018.
