The Sage Collective, Inc. was established in 2017. Drs. Jen Castellanos-Bonow and Kerri Milyko, along with Jeff Gesick and Megan Szeto, had spent years serving children diagnosed with autism or other behavioral challenges (and their families) for various organizations around the country. When we all found themselves back in Reno/Sparks we joined together, along with Kerri’s husband, Ethan, and Jeff’s wife, Kelly, around a mission to build a more nurturing community by applying the science of behavior to problems facing families and children in Northern Nevada. In the early days of building our consulting business, Dr. Kerri presented the group with a problem - she had clients and RBTs (registered behavior technicians) who were at risk of losing their services and employment due to changes in a state program. Never one to forgo a challenge, she encouraged the group to pivot to providing ABA services for these children. Given the significant need in Nevada for ABA providers and the extensive experience of our founders, it seemed like the perfect path forward. Thus, The Learning Consultants was born. 

We remain dedicated to growing nurturing communities and are proud to be applying our training and experience, right here in Reno/Sparks where it all started.



We are group of humans that believe the science of behavior can change the world–for good. Join us as we build an inclusive company and culture with a foundation in compassion, integrity, accountability, precision, progress, community and fun.
