BIOGRAPHY

Brittany has been a life-long advocate for those with various learning difficulties and/or special needs. Her passion started as a child, when her younger sister was diagnosed with Intellectual and Developmental disabilities. Growing up in a home where she had to learn to adapt, accommodate and modify pushed her towards a natural desire to work with students with disabilities. Even as a teenager and while completing college courses, her jobs consisted of supporting the disability community. She was a camp counselor, an in-home support specialist, and a teacher's aide before completing her degrees and teaching in a variety of special education classrooms. After the birth of her son, she completed her master's degree in special education. Shortly after that, she learned about the practice of educational therapy and become enamored with how the brain works and how students learn best based on their specific cognitive profiles. Since then, she has spent her time earning the credits and hours needed to become a professional educational therapist. She is beyond excited to be able to connect with families and help them and their children reach their potential. As a mother to a young child on the autism spectrum, she has a reservoir of personal experiences with which to connect to families and help them better understand how their children learn best. Brittany wants to help young children build a strong overall foundation that will lead to a brighter future!
