Maggie Molony, PhD, BCBA-D

Maggie Molony, Ph.D., BCBA-D, is originally from Cincinnati, Ohio. While obtaining her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Bellarmine University (located in Louisville, Kentucky), she began working as a direct support professional at a psychiatric hospital. Maggie worked on all units, ranging from mental health, to substance abuse, to individuals with Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities (IDD). It was there that she began her journey in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), primarily with individuals with severe problem behavior. After working in-homes with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) for a few years, she moved to Carbondale, Illinois to earn her master’s degree in ABA. There she gained experience working with parents involved in the Department of Child and Family Services; a position that changed her career trajectory. She then began to focus on working alongside caregivers of individuals of all ages with behavioral concerns (with and without disabilities) to increase her impact of providing empirically supported positive behavior interventions. While earning her doctorate in special education, she created and ran a program specific to caregivers in a behavior clinic. She has experience working with parents, family members, direct support personnel (specific to working with children and adults with IDD), teachers, and school admin. She currently serves as the Director of ABA Autism Services at Advantage Behavioral Health. She has built from the ground up an in-home program that serves 10 Northeast Georgia counties, while also consulting with the adult IDD program at Advantage. Maggie is excited to work in the clinical field serving families in need and is passionate about expanding ABA to various environments and age groups (early childhood to adult). She also enjoys utilizing organizational behavior management techniques within companies that provide services to individuals with ASD and IDD. She currently resides in Athens, GA with her husband, son, and their dog
