Christie Van Ochten, MHRM
Working with kids is so much fun! I love how lively they make the office, how they can make you smile even on bad days, and I love that they appreciate my desk toys.
I come to WellCare with 11 years of human resources experience with a specialization in diversity and inclusion, people analytics, and organizational change.
Prior to WellCare have worked in IT, education, staffing, and engineering.
Stephanie began her journey working with children diagnosed with Autism and behavior management needs through Child and Family Services of Erie County in 2007.
Stephanie spent the next 11 years as a Para Professional, serving the special needs population at the Stanley G. Falk School. Her students ranged in age from 2 to 21 years old. In her spare time, Stephanie volunteered as a soccer coach for the school.
In 2019, Stephanie, her husband and two pups relocated from Buffalo NY to Colorado to live the mountain life. She gained her RBT certification that same year and provided ABA services in both a multidisciplinary clinic and in the home for the last two years.
Stephanie is looking forward to growing her career in Applied Behavior Analysis as a Scheduler for WellCare. She feels privileged to serve the ASD community and is dedicated to providing the best care for each client and their family.
