Meet Destiny Brown, Administrator/Campus Director for the New Haven branch of Excel Academy, LLC. The academy is a specialized school that provides graduates with a strong foundation for careers in the health care industry.
Destiny is a former foster child, placed in foster care at birth because her biological parent struggled with substance dependency. After transitioning between a number of foster homes, Destiny found her forever home at age nine when her then foster mom adopted her.
Destiny thrived in a stable and loving environment. She completed high school, went on to earn her credentialing as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), and started her career in the health care industry.
While working as a clinical scheduler, Destiny met Lynne Kravitz-Singley, a psychiatric nurse. Lynne had previously operated and developed the curriculum for a CNA program for the City of New Haven. When the program’s grant ended, Lynne decided to start her own school, focused on comprehensive medical career training for local residents.
