Zak Reineke


ABA Operations Director

Basic Info: I was born and raised here in Phoenix, I graduated from ASU with my bachelor’s in secondary education to teach history, but within the education college I found out about ABA and worked at a camp for individuals with behavioral and emotional challenges. This provided a pathway to starting my master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in Applied Behavior Analysis. I moved back east to Boston for a few years and after suffering from the snow decided that I preferred the heat and desert. Since moving back I have worked on case supervision for the past 6 years prior to handling more of the day-to-day running of the ABA department here at TEAM4Kids.

Interests and Hobbies: I like watching and attending sporting events including the Coyotes, football, and the Diamondbacks. Sports are frequently on TV. I enjoy cooking, traveling abroad, and enjoy playing board or card games with friends.

Favorite Quote: “Nothing in life is to be feared; it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more so that we may fear less.” – Marie Curie

Favorite Place to travel: Any where I haven’t been, but I really liked Ireland when I was there and hope to return at some point in the future.

What I Love About Working With Kids: They always keep you on your toes.
