Meet Demmentrice

Impacting children and families through education has been an exciting and purposefully journey for me. In 2017 I created Brain Pickers Consulting and Training, after working in the Childcare Industry for over 16 years. Brain Pickers is a unique Child Care consulting firm that inspires educators and professionals to explore current challenges of what’s possible in the world of Education.

Educators are on the frontline of change and they have a direct impact on the lives of our children. As a Certified Trainer and PLC Coordinator, I have a Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education, a Masters Degree in Secondary Education, and a Masters Degree in Business Administration. My knowledge along with experience has granted opportunities on the state and governmental level, in the Public School System, Head Start, Prekindergarten, Family Daycare Providers, Childcare Centers, and as a speaker for professional conferences.
Education is not just my profession it is my passion! Allow the team at Brain Pickers, to introduce you to innovative knowledge and different support tools need for future success in Early Childcare Education. Welcome to the mind of a Child!
