The BPI Team

Our brain trainers have educational backgrounds in many various fields including therapy disciplines, nursing, education, foreign language studies, applied mathematics and more. We prefer to have educational diversity on the team to ensure that we continually cut the edge and think outside the box. We believe that if we were all similarly credentialed, we would tend to think in similar patterns that would be counterproductive to this new and emerging field.

Cathy Linney

Co-Owner, Business Manager

Cathy Linney is a co-owner and Business Administrator of our company, including testing and consulting for our program. She is a massive talent with many years of Special Education experience and a passion for using the tools of brain exercise to do whatever it takes to make a brain strong.

In addition to her education credentials, Cathy also has spent much of her career in engineering and accounting. Her engineering perspective is especially useful when our goal is to build the best brain.

She lives in the country, loves all kinds of animals and is surrounded by children and grandchildren. Cathy crochets and knits for pleasure if she ever gets the time.

Alisa Raney

Co-Owner, Program Manager

Alisa Raney is a co-owner, and the Program Director. Her background is in Sociology and Behavioral Sciences. She has home-schooled her five children and they have successfully completed, or are currently attaining college degrees under her instruction.

Alisa first became acquainted with optimizing brains when she and her husband began traveling the nation in search of the most effective brain repair treatments for their son with cerebral palsy. Alisa was privileged to be trained under Jane Davis and tried to glean all she could in the way of neuroplasticity as fast as she could.

In her spare time, Alisa loves leading Bible studies, quilting and her 6 grandchildren. You will love her smile, her energy, and her passion for seeing people achieve their best.

René Boone

René has been a Senior Trainer for both the original Brain Potential Institute, when she trained under Jane Davis and continued on to present with Brain Potential Institute of Texas. René is probably our most serious brain trainer. By the time René is done with your brain it will have achieved auditory and linguistic perfection. She has a wealth of experience as an extraordinary home-school mom and teacher.
