Meet our team
After completing high school, Bob studied for 2 years at Cerritos College and one year at CSU Fullerton. During this time, he also attended LA Trade Tech where he gained his Los Angeles Plumbing License. Bob served in the US Army Reserves and was on active duty at Fort Bragg, NC and Fort Lee, VA. Shortly after completing military service, he and his wife Patty and daughter Jennifer moved to B.C. Canada, where he headed an infrastructure project for the Coast Salish First Nation reservation, installing underground water utilities and re-piped and re-plumbed over 75 houses, helping to improve quality of life greatly in their community. During these two years Bob and Patty built their own A Frame house and were blessed with their second daughter Theresa.
Upon returning to California, he worked as a Superintendent/Project Manager overseeing many large projects in the Los Angeles area. Bob then moved onto a General Contracting Company and soon became a Partner in the company managing new and large construction projects. Bob sold his company to Gray Construction in 2001 and stayed on as a manager/consultant for a number of years eventually retiring in 2008. Bob has spent the years following traveling with his family, practicing Tae Kwon Do and enjoying other sports activities with his grandsons AJ and Kalen.
In 2017, Bob served as Executive Producer on a Documentary Film project with Emmy Award Winning Director/Writer and family friend Mark Kirkland. The film is titled Bud’s Odyssey, and tells the epic WWII survival story about his Dad, Robert E Bud Kingsbury. Bud’s Odyssey was shown at over 15 film festivals in the US and Internationally, and received numerous awards. During the making of this film, Bob became acutely aware of his Dad’s struggle with Post Traumatic Stress and how his whole family dealt with it growing up.
Bob had subsequently suffered with chronic insomnia and sought treatment in Neurofeedback/Brain Paint at Dr. DiSiena’s office where he not only found relief from this condition, but also discovered that Brain Paint is a significant and clinically proven treatment for PTS. A partnership then began to help our Vets and First Responders gain healing by free treatments in Brain Paint, nutritional counseling and chiropractic care. Bud’s Odyssey Foundation began in 2017 and has proven to be a catalyst for healing, relief from PTS symptoms and overall health. Bob is supported by an incredible team of dedicated people who truly care about our Vets and First Responders, and share a united vision to give them the healing and quality of life they deserve for serving our country.
Brain paint Provider and Advisor
Growing up in Fresno, California, I was raised by my two “Greatest Generation” parents who modeled a lifestyle that included purposeful work, lifelong learning, optimized nutrition, regular recreational activity, community involvement, and a faith commitment. This apple doesn't fall from that tree. From a young age, I spent my after-school hours and summers working at the family hardware business—from dusting and answering phones to handling accounts payable/receivable and operating heavy equipment. After high school graduation, I studied at Pepperdine University, Malibu—graduating with a BA in Organizational Communication then continuing my education at CSU Fresno to earn a high school English/Speech teaching credential. I had a fulfilling career teaching at private and public high schools in Burbank, Thousand Oaks, and Fresno for nearly 20 years. While in Southern California, I also worked as a sensory cognitive motor therapist—working with children and adults using a host of techniques such as vision therapy, visual biofeedback, PACE (Processing and Cognitive Enhancement) Program, and Interactive Metronome.
Shortly after boomeranging back to Fresno, I was in a life-altering cycling accident in 2008 that resulted in whiplash; a broken neck, jaw, nose, and teeth; and a then-undiagnosed traumatic brain injury. That was the beginning of a significant downward spiral in health with a myriad of inexplicable debilitating symptoms. In 2014—after six years of seeking health solutions (including quitting a high-stress teaching career), I discovered BrainPaint neurofeedback, earned my BrainPaint certification, and started my own practice. Twenty-five BrainPaint sessions resulted in a healed, more balanced brain and freedom from those stubborn debilitating symptoms.
I’m grateful to have such deeply meaningful work as a BrainPaint provider and owner-operator of Elevate Brain Training in Fresno, CA. When I’m not working, my husband John Ellenberger and I enjoy strength training, playing frisbee, hiking, rollerblading, and being actively involved in local philanthropy as well as in our faith community. We're members of the Mayor's Faith-Based Partnership Council, whose purpose is to engage community members to help achieve a better quality of life for Fresnans. At First Presbyterian Church, Fresno, I'm active in leadership, including Circles of Care (trauma-oriented care) and women’s ministry—most recently as a women’s conference speaker.
I’m honored and privileged to partner with Bud’s Odyssey Foundation to help Fresno-area military veterans and first responders heal through neurofeedback and thrive.
