Meet The Team

Bonnie Treece


Bonnie founded The Brain Domain after noticing that her students were not being taught in the way that worked best for them. Bonnie determined it would be best for her students if The Brain Domain focused on customizing lessons to the students’ learning styles, personalities, and much more. She is passionate about helping others succeed and really enjoys receiving all of the positive feedback from The Brain Domain’s awesome students. She received her BA in Psychology and graduated summa cum laude.
