Author Bio

My name is Zhanna Shekhtmeyster and I am a school psychologist in Santa Monica, California. I received my Masters of Education Degree in Counseling, Clinical, & School Psychology from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2010. I am a Licensed Educational Psychologist, Nationally Certified School Psychologist, and carry a Pupil Personnel Services Credential in School Psychology. I have been a practicing school psychologist in a middle school setting for the last 8 years. My main areas of focus include psycho-educational evaluations, delivery of psychological services, and behavior support. I collaborate with many community mental health service providers and I am also the creator of the Behavior Observation Made Easy app. My goal in creating the app was to simplify the data collection process, improve data analysis efficiency, and to save time for myself and my colleagues.

Dr. Jeremy Sharp is a licensed psychologist and Clinical Director at the Colorado Center for Assessment & Counseling, a private practice that he founded in 2009.
