One of Brainy Camps dedicated medical team member, Stephanie Schneider, received the Power of One Award at Children's National. Children's National's Power of One Award is given to employees who exemplify on of its vision principals: "thinking differently, finding what works best, making creative connections, and never forgetting who we are caring for". Stephanie has volunteered as an Occupational Therapist (OT) for Camp Take Hold for several years and hopes to continue to do so for many more. You rock Stephanie!!
