Hi there! My name is Briana Mourao, and I am the Program Director here at Brain Balance of Jacksonville. I have a Bachelors from the University of North Florida in Psychology with a minor in Criminal Justice. As well as, my Masters from Florida Institute of Technology in Applied Behavioral Analysis. I have a passion for working with children on the Autism Spectrum, but have found new enjoyment working with children of all developmental delays and disabilities, while working here at Brain Balance. I bring with me 7+ years of hands-on experience in the field. I am happily married and I have two children of my own, a daughter and a son, both who consume my free time and mean everything to me. When I'm not taking care of my babies, I enjoy traveling with my family and working out.

Hi! My name is Destiny! I was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. I recently graduated with honors from Florida State University with my Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology. I am currently looking to further my education and obtain a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I love working with children, I have a background in childcare and three little siblings at home that I love more than anything. Watching the children here at Brain Balance grow as they complete the program gives me so much joy! Other than working at Brain Balance, I also love to paint, read, and spend time outside enjoying the sun!
