My name is Staci Danford, I am the Founder and CEO of THE Gratitude Business. I am an Educational Neuroscientist with a Master’s Degree in Mind, Brain & Education, and a specialization in GRATITUDE and its impact on the brain.
I spent more than two decades in the field of education where I developed a reputation for being able to uncover hidden potential in people like no one else could. After winning The Fort Worth Top Ten Teacher Award, I decided it was the perfect time to go back to school to pursue my longtime passion of Neuroscience.
I quickly became fascinated about combining scientific research with a my new-found awareness of how the brain processes gratitude, which developed into my Capstone Research Study that would later change the lives of people all over the world. I am Certified in The Foundations of Happiness at Work from University of California at Berkeley and a member of The Greater Good Science Center. I am also a loyal member of The Center for Brain Health at the Brain Performance Institute in Dallas, Texas.
According to cutting-edge scientific data, GRATITUDE is the #1 way to increase your level of long-term happiness. I am dedicated to staying at the forefront of research and data on how GRATITUDE impacts the brain and devoted to helping others incorporate Scientific Gratitude (rather than "casual Thanks") into their daily practice. By helping others understanding they can actually alter the way their brain works by “lighting up” neurons in your brain with GRATITUDE, they can change their productivity, their health, and their relationships. It is my goal to help people of all ages discover the many ways GRATITUDE teaches us ALL to see the good in others while uncovering the best within ourselves!
