The past five years of Lynn and Jason’s family’s life were filled with health challenges that seemed insurmountable. Leaning on God through these times allowed them to come out on the other side, stronger and more blessed than they could have ever imagined. With grateful hearts, they turned their eyes upward and asked, “What is your plan for us God? We are here to serve.” God answered them with an overwhelming need to use their talents to help children in need. As a middle school teacher of seventeen years, Lynn worked tirelessly to help the kids who struggled. Regardless of the amount of blood sweat and tears she poured into these kids, their gains never seemed to be enough. Jason worked as a CNC machinist for thirteen years, although he loved his job, he has always had an amazing way with children. He has a passion for helping them see the best in themselves.
Lynn started researching programs that help children, and that is when she found Brain Balance. Together, they jumped in with both feet, as they knew it was the direction they needed to go. They have also enrolled their son in the program and he is growing and thriving. Lynn has found immeasurable joy in helping kids make profound change and watching families’ lives change for the better. Jason, has taken on the Program Director role and loves working with children and helping them find their highest potential. The mission of this center is to help as many children as possible grow to their God given potential.
My name is Emily Wollner and I am the Program Director. I have my Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Educational Studies and in Adaptive Education from Concordia University in Mequon. Throughout my time in high school and college I worked at daycares, children's centers, and adult group homes while also going through my pre-student teaching placements. After graduating college, I continued my work with the special needs population doing ABA Therapy and then eventually continued on to use my knowledge in early childhood as a preschool teacher. Brain Balance immediately caught my attention when I found myself looking to do even more and somehow "combine" everything I had learned into one career and that's exactly what Brain Balance is. Every job leading up to Brain Balance was important to me, including the students and the families, but Brain Balance has truly been my calling. Getting to work with kids and families and change their lives has been the biggest blessing and the reason I love my work here at Brain Balance so much.
