Remember that saying- “The man behind the mask” ? Of course, with Covid-19 that has probably taken on a whole new meaning for all of us. But anyway- I’ve been thinking about that saying a lot since I started the facebook page for Brain FUNdamentals.
You see- those of you who know me, know the “woman behind the mask”- the person posting on the facebook page- is really me….Amy.
But for new followers (and those still to come) they may want to know who I am. Know- me.
So here I go. Let me introduce myself. This is me.
My name is Amy Brewis. I am a former elementary school teacher of almost 20 years. I knew I wanted to be a teacher from the time I started watching “Little House on the Prairie” and was wearing braids just like Laura Ingalls Wilder. I have spent time teaching preschool, 2nd grade and 4th grade. I also taught technology to 2nd & 3rd graders, and then later, 4th & 5th graders.
I am a wife and a mother. I am a mother to two teenage boys- one neurotypical, and one on the autism spectrum. I’ve learned a lot from being a wife and mother, and I’ve learned even more from being a parent of a special needs child; most especially- patience, perseverance and strength.
I am the former Lead Coach and Educator for Brain Fit Academy Inc. Brain Fit is where I learned about Primitive Reflex Integration and is where I started my current life journey. Seeking help for my son is what brought me to Brain Fit and the story unfolded from there.
I am a licensed Brain Gym® Instructor/Consultant. I first learned about Brain Gym when I was teaching 2nd grade and was re-introduced to it when my son was attending the program through Brain Fit Academy. I continued the extensive training on my own and was proud to earn the full licensure last year.
I am the owner of Brain FUNdamentals LLC. I started this company because I believe in, and am passionate about, the work that I do. When “My Cheese got Moved”, I needed to make a decision as to how I was going to handle the change in my life. I chose to go back out into the proverbial maze and create my own cheese- my own business.
I specialize in Primitive Reflex Integration. It’s not Rocket Science, but is very powerful and makes lasting changes where other therapies may not. When I first learned about reflex integration- it was eye-opening. And now- I see that same reaction in those that I teach it to.
I am still a teacher. I just teach in a different way. Now, I teach teachers. I also teach occupational therapists, and physical therapists, and other professionals. I teach them about Brain Gym and I teach them about reflex integration. I teach them about stress and its reaction on the brain & body and I teach them about ways to bring about positive change.
This is me.
This is Amy Brewis.
This is the “woman behind the mask”.
This is the person that expresses herself in blog posts.
This is the person posting on the facebook page and this is the person that will answer the email or the phone if you contact Brain FUNdamentals.
This. is. me.
It’s very nice to meet you.
