About Ann Brand Mindfulness

Ann Brand | Ph.D. in Psychology

Ann Brand is a certified mindfulness teacher through The Mindfulness Training Institute (MTI) and the International Mindfulness Teachers Association (IMTA). She is also an Associate Lecturer in the College of Education, Hospitality, Health, and Human Sciences at The University of Wisconsin-Stout and Program Specialist for Mindfulness Training for Arts Integration Menomonie (AIM). Ann holds a doctorate in psychology from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill with an emphasis on child development and families.

Ann first encountered mindfulness in her study of the experience and expression of emotion in her work at the National Institute of Mental Health in Bethesda, MD. Exploration of the research showed mindfulness supports attention and memory, emotion regulation, stress reduction, and positive relationships among other things. Suffering from grief after her mother’s death, Ann eventually tried mindfulness practice herself, and found it brought calm, clarity, and peace to the joys and challenges of daily life.

Based on her experience with mindfulness, Ann’s professional and personal interests began to merge. She has integrated mindfulness into teacher education at UW-Stout to support teachers in being more healthy, present, effective educators. As the Program Specialist for Mindfulness with AIM, Ann teaches mindfulness practice to educators, pre-service teachers, and artists. Ann is also part of Mental Health Matters, which brings mindfulness training to middle and high school educators in Eau Claire and Chippewa Counties.

Since receiving her mindfulness teacher training through MTI in 2014, Ann has introduced the practice of mindfulness to students, teachers, administrators, and educational leaders in both K-12 and higher education. Ann also works with business and health care organizations. She offers professional development for educators in Wisconsin and teaches mindfulness classes in her community at The Center in Eau Claire, WI.
