About Us


The Center for Behavior and Climate (CBC)
The Center for Behavior and Climate's (CBC) mission is to make a difference in climate change through transformative education. Specifically, we educate climate professionals, college and high school students, and individual learners about climate science, climate solutions, and behavioral approaches to climate solutions. CBC is a new division of Behavior Development Solutions and an outgrowth of our educational work.


Behavior Development Solutions (BDS)
Since 1998, BDS has helped tens of thousands of people successfully learn by applying the scientific principles and methods of applied behavior analysis  to the development of online instruction. We use specific measurable objectives to teach the discriminations necessary to ensure that those objectives are learned. We then provide plenty of practice to ensure retention. Our CBA Learning Module Series is the premier exam prep and curriculum supplement for behavior analysts in training to become Board Certified.


Caroly Shumway, Ph.D., Director, Center for Behavior and Climate
Dr. Shumway is passionate about making a difference on climate change through education, inspired by her grandfather, Dr. Roger Revelle, one of the earliest scientists recognizing human impacts on CO2. Caroly works to advance the study and use of behavioral science in the climate change field, enhance climate action and climate literacy, and educate climate professionals. Upcoming climate change education efforts include scaling up behavior change to organizations, behavior change and climate adaptation, and nature-based solutions to climate adaptation. Trained in the study of brain and behavior, Caroly wrote about the need to consider behavior in conservation over twenty years ago and has applied behavior change in stormwater messaging, value-based conservation, and aquarium exhibit design. Caroly has 25 years of experience in behavior change, sustainable development, natural resource management and conservation, policy, research, and outreach in Africa, Asia, South Pacific, and the U.S., working in government, nonprofits, and academia. In 2016-2017, she was USAID's Chief Scientist for the Global Development Lab, Senior Science Advisor to USAID's Administrator, and Director of the Center for Development Research; she has also been Executive Director of three environmental nonprofits and held senior positions at The Nature Conservancy and the New England Aquarium. Caroly received a BA in Biology from Wellesley College, a Ph.D. from Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and was a postdoctoral research fellow at Caltech, Boston University, and the Marine Biological Lab. She is a recipient of the Capranica Award in Neuroethology and author of 27 publications.


Stephen Eversole, Ed.D., BCBA-D, President of Behavior Development Solutions
 Dr. Eversole was inspired to become a "behaviorist" in a high school psychology class after reading "Beyond Freedom and Dignity" by B. F. Skinner.  He remained inspired, receiving his M.A. in Applied Behavior Analysis from Western Michigan University in 1984 and his Ed.D. in Special Education from the University of Kentucky in 1995.  That same year Dr. Eversole began dabbling in computer-based training and in 1998 founded Behavior Development Solutions—makers of the CBA Learning Module Series, CE products, and other training materials. Steve has practiced behavior analysis for over 35 years, working with a variety of special needs populations including individuals with autism, mental retardation, and severe emotional disturbances.  Dr. Eversole has also taught classes on behavior analysis and presented research findings at professional conferences.  Dr. Eversole’s current research interest is in instructional design and its application to teaching both inside and outside the field of behavior analysis.  In 2019, Dr. Eversole was inspired to commit the resources of Behavior Development Solutions to the issue of our time--climate change.  Thus, the Center for Behavior and Climate was founded.



Emma De Roy, M.Sc., Behavioral Science Advisor

Emma has been teaching, conducting and publishing research, and managing programs within the fields of environmental science, behavioral science, and sustainable development for 7+ years. She has worked with the World Bank’s Mind, Behavior, and Development Unit, the Busara Center for Behavioral Economics, and the Green Climate Fund’s Behaviour and Design Lab, using behavioural insights to increase the sustainability of development interventions. She currently teaches at the post-secondary level to inspire youth action on the environment. At the Sierra Club Canada Foundation, she leveraged science communication to support grassroots action on the environment and notably air pollution. She holds a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Behaviour, Cognition, and Neurology and a Masters in Environmental Science.


Rebecca Edgecumbe, MA, BCBA
Rebecca Edgecumbe is inspired to utilize the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to address climate change.  She earned her BS in psychology from the University of Washington, and went on to earn a MA in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University.  After several years of working with children with autism and other developmental disabilities, she became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).  With the Center for Behavior and Climate, Rebecca is merging her educational background and 20 years of professional experience in ABA with her lifelong interest in the environment and conservation. Rebecca is currently interested in motivating others to learn more about climate change and to take action to address this critical, existential issue at an individual and societal level.


Hadley Kunz, M.Ed., BCBA

 Hadley is interested in making information about environmental science and pro-climate action more accessible. She holds an M.Ed. from Chaminade University in Hawaii and completed her post-graduate Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) coursework at Penn State University. Hadley works at Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health and has a Board Certification in Behavior Analysis (BCBA). Prior to working in behavioral healthcare, Hadley worked as an environmental non-profit manager. She developed and taught place-based environmental curriculum, and ran an aquaponics and native plant nursery center. With her background and experience, Hadley hopes to grow the field of behavior analysis to become more present in conservation efforts.
