About the Center
Center Story - Tysons
During the long journey raising a special needs daughter I often said to my husband, “If I can figure out McKenna, I am going to start a business based on the solution because I will be able to help so many families”. After experiencing the life changing impact LearningRx had on McKenna, I knew I discovered the next business I was going to apply my decades of business experience to leading.
McKenna does not have a diagnosis that explains the countless challenges that she faces including delays in every category of development, cognitive delays, numerous medical issues and more. I was told she would never learn anything academic and would be challenged to feed/dress herself. But I never gave up and researched every potential intervention/treatment possible and tried many of them. The one intervention that made a significant difference is LearningRx brain training.
I knew that I wanted to open my first center in Vienna where my children grew up and attended school. Our children have since completed high school attending Wolftrap ES, Kilmer MS and James Madison High School. As a result, we personally know many of the families that we serve which makes the impact mean so much more.
Over the last decade, we have worked with thousands of families from the Vienna, McLean, Arlington, Dunn Loring, Oakton and surrounding areas. I am active in the community serving as a board director of non-profits, spearheading school-based programs and more.
