Deana Smith

Executive Director

Deana is on our Executive Management Team. She oversees the three Atlanta locations and is the acting Center Director in the Roswell center. Deana has a background in early childhood education. She has over 25 years of experience working with children. Deana was the Executive Director for 15 years with one of the largest child development non-profit corporations in South Florida. She was managing three pre-schools, 30 after-school programs, 10 grant programs, and 20 summer camps.
Her passion has always been child development. Deana was formally a Center Director and Marketing Executive for a Sylvan Learning Center for a few years. In 2013 she started working at Brain Balance of Roswell as a Cognitive Coach. Right away she was beyond impressed by the changes she saw in all the children in the program. Months later Deana emerged as the Assistant Director and became so inspired by the Brain Balance approach that she moved to Florida to help open a new center in Palm Beach, where she was the Program Director for several years… Next, Deana became a Center Director and now she is back to where she started at the Brain Balance Atlanta locations. Between all of the centers and seeing hundreds of incredible success stories Deana wholeheartedly believes in this process and has a deep passion working with our Brain Balance kids. Even her own child went through the program and it was the ONLY thing that gave her answers as to “WHY”.
Deana is the proud mother of three children. In her spare time, she loves to draw, paint, and try DIY crafts with her daughter. You can find her hiking or spending time in nature on the weekends.
