Brain Balance of Summit’s center director Betsy Stoeber opened in 2011 based on her own son’s phenomenal success in the program (he attended the center in Norwalk, CT before there were centers in NJ). Now, almost a decade later, Betsy and her caring staff have supported numerous kids and their families through successful Brain Balance program terms. Betsy’s professional background pre-Brain Balance was in business, but she has eagerly made the transition to working with children and families. She holds a MBA from NYU’s Stern School of Business and a BA from the University of Michigan. In early 2011, she successfully completed training through the Brain Balance Academy, training directly with Brain Balance founder Dr. Robert Melillo. The story of Betsy’s personal involvement with the Brain Balance Program can be heard in this segment of The Dr. Rob Show (a pilot Dr. Melillo created a number of years ago). Betsy continues to further her knowledge of the brain, hemispheric integration, and neurodevelopmental issues of childhood through ongoing training and study. She has made it her mission to communicate with her community about the root cause of the academic, behavioral and social challenges experienced by so many children, as well as to be a source of information for families on parenting and healthy living. Above all, she enjoys being a part of the achievement and success of children – her own, and those who come to Brain Balance of Summit.

Pragya joined the Brain Balance of Summit staff after experiencing her own child’s growth and accomplishments in the program. After speaking with many families on an informal basis about her love of the program, Pragya felt inspired to join the team. With a background in sales, marketing and advertising, Pragya enjoys the daily interaction she has with families seeking solutions for their struggling children. She says, “When I’ve successfully communicated what makes Brain Balance different and the light bulb goes off for a parent, I know I’ve put another family on the path to a brighter future.” Pragya actively encourages families to reach out to her — she hopes to speak with you soon!
