Mandi Dickey is a Board Certified Nurse Practitioner with 20+ years of experience in healthcare, nearly all being related to neurosciences. Aside from being a two-time Top Nurse Practitioner award winner, she received the Faculty Excellence award in her previous role of nursing professor, has been on the review committee for several nursing textbooks, and holds the most prestigious award of “Best Mom Ever” from her children. Mandi started Brain Wellness Solutions in 2022, a virtual neurology health education company, where she began her own podcast and authored a book on migraine treatment. ‘Brain Wellness – the Podcast’ has featured both healthcare professionals and patients experiencing various illnesses related to brain health. In 2023, Mandi was in a car accident and suffered a traumatic brain injury, and while not fully recovered, has returned to her passion of sharing and educating the public about neuroscience topics, now most passionately about concussion and TBI.

About the Podcast

Bringing Education Home
Helping families develop inside and outside the box!
Bringing Education Home is hosted by Herb and Kristina Heagh-Avritt, founders of Vibrant Family Education. Each week, they interview experts who serve families and discuss topics that help parents take charge of their children's education. Our goal? To empower families, especially those navigating the challenges of entrepreneurship, with practical tips and strategies for a more harmonious and enriched family life.

In a time when the education system is so broken, we believe in bringing education home to keep families unified and help them bond more deeply. As parents, we know our children best, and we are their most effective teachers.
