Jon Assistant Director
After graduating college with a degree in English Literature I knew I wanted to work with kids so that I could instill in them a passion for reading. Getting to know my clients one-on-one while playing cognitive games and building their brain skills has been even more rewarding than I anticipated. Almost a decade later, I still cherish the opportunity to change lives and bring happiness to all kinds of people through brain training.
I’ve worked in Education for over a decade in various roles. I hold a BA in Psychology from the University of Louisville and have been a trainer at LearningRx since 2017. I’m also Mom to Bailey, Emme and Avery and a guinea pig named Jingle Bells. I love that LearningRx fosters an environment for learning and lets us build authentic relationships with our students. Whether it is a difficult session because of the intensity of an activity or because it was a bad day at school, students know that we are there to support them.
Heather Brain Trainer
I’ve been a Cognitive Trainer with LearningRx for little over a year now. As someone currently pursuing my doctorate in Clinical Psychology, I love that LearningRx allows me to use my skills and experience in a different way while also challenging me and allowing me to grow alongside my students. Each student is different and unique, and I enjoy both the challenge and reward of figuring out novel ways to train the same skill to complement different learning styles.

Artist Extraordinaire. I am a Recording and Sound engineer as well as a music artist and I am in the midst starting my own seasoning business. What interested me about LearningRx is the ability the program has to help people. Training is amazing! I love dealing with all the different varieties of kids and people and tailoring the trainings toward their learning style. I enjoy it and have fun doing it.

I grew up on Long Island, New York. I have a MSW. I worked as a social worker for many years. We have happily called Kentucky our home for the last ten years. LearningRx helped my teenage son greatly. It was immediately evident the staff were professionals, with proven interventions. It was an easy decision for me to become a trainer and it’s immensely satisfying to turn tears of frustration into smiles of confidence and pride.
Mimi Brain Trainer
I’m from St. Louis and graduated from University of Louisville with a major in Exercise Science. My favorite part about working at LearningRx is helping kids overcome things they never thought they could. In my free time I enjoy spending time with friends, my three dogs, and horseback riding.

I’m the Owner/Director of Louisville’s LearningRx. I have worked for LearningRx since our center opened in June of 2011, and I took over as the owner in June of 2019. I have a background in Psychology and Social Work and I’m passionate about helping people succeed. I continue to be astounded by the success of our students on a daily basis, it hasn’t grown old even after 9 years! I’d love to talk to you about how we can help you or someone you love!
Brian Brain Trainer
Making people's lives better has been my focus throughout my career, as a trainer, English teacher, and lawyer. As a LearningRx trainer, it's rewarding to help students push through difficult obstacles to develop lasting skills that make a real difference in how they live and learn. It’s amazing to see students' eyes opened to what they can do and become more skilled and confident learners--and even have fun while doing it!

In my home country, I worked in Education for over 13 years, mainly in the areas of English as a Foreign Language and International Relations. Helping people has always been one of my passions, that's why I decided to accept the challenge of becoming a Trainer. I really love to have the opportunity to help the students of our programs to develop their skills to succeed in their daily lives.
