OUR BOARD MEMBERS

BRANDI TRAMAZZO

Executive Board Member

I grew up with military family members around me. My family founded the Wentworth Military Academy in Lexington, MO. Careers: Head of Trade Desk at Birchtree Financial in KC, MO. Crisis Intervention Counselor. Founder and CEO of Fussy Fraulein, Inc., Construction Cleaning/Janitorial company. Living in the North East, the impetus of my “Big Dream” was born when I saw the Twin Towers fall. I wanted to say “Thank You” to our active duty protectors. Along with an amazing Executive Board, our long- term desire is for the BT HERO HOUSE(s) to serve as many Active Duty military families as possible.
