President and Founder
Core Action Consulting President Jing Zhou is a seasoned behavior analyst with over 30 years of clinical experience and 21 years of business experience as an owner and operator.
Jing has extensive clinical experience working with individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities in clinical, educational, and residential settings. In 2000, she opened Interventions Unlimited, Inc. to provide home, community, and clinic-based ABA services to children with autism or other special needs. In 2007, recognizing the tremendous need for a school for special needs children, Jing started a full-time ABA school, Alpine Academy. Both companies were recognized as leading ABA providers. In 2019, they were successfully acquired by the Family Treatment Network, a national behavioral health company that provides behavioral health and special education to children and adolescents. Jing served on the executive team after the acquisition until 2021, when she became a consultant.
Jing started her consulting firm, Core Action Consulting, LLC, to help other business owners achieve their dreams. She uses her business acumen, knowledge of the ABA and autism service industry, and her skills in Organizational Behavior Management to help entrepreneurs excel in each stage of the business life cycle.
Jing has won multiple business awards such as 2014 U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) State of Florida Women-Owned Small Business Person of the Year; 2014 Asian Entrepreneur of the Year Award given by the Asian American Chamber of Commerce of Central Florida; and 2016 GrowFL Companies to Watch.
As a certified Pinnacle Business Guide, Jing has access to a wealth of tools and resources to help each client achieve their goals and objectives.
