August 2, 2023: Children’s Therapy Center (CTC), one of the largest and most comprehensive independent nonprofit pediatric therapy programs in Washington, has announced the selection of Nichelle Brown as its new chief executive officer.
“Nichelle’s knowledge and commitment to all services offered to children and families at CTC is unsurpassed,” said Sarah Daniels, president of Children’s Therapy Center’s board of directors. “She brings over a decade of experience in child and family systems leadership and program development to this role, and her passion for the well-being of children and families is evident in all she does. We are incredibly excited about the future of CTC under Nichelle’s leadership!”
Nichelle joined CTC in June of 2021 as the director of the organization’s Early Supports for Infants and Toddlers (ESIT) program. Under her leadership, the program grew to serve more children, families, and communities in south King and Pierce counties.
Prior to joining CTC, Nichelle was the ESIT program manager at Listen and Talk in Seattle. She currently sits on the board of Birth to Three Developmental Center and participates in the King County Transformative, Healing and Liberation Group.

She is a member of the Pierce County Developmental Disabilities DEIB Strategic Planning Team and many other county, state, and community groups.
“I am thrilled to have the pleasure of leading a dynamic and diverse group of people committed to serving children and families every day,” said Nichelle. “I look forward to working with our leadership team to embed the values of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging both in the workplace and in the community. The more we serve each other, see each other, support each other, and create spaces where all people know and feel they belong, the more impact we will have for children and families.”
Nichelle holds a master’s degree in education from Temple University and a bachelor’s in social work from Norfolk State University. She and her husband live with their two children in Federal Way.
