Meet the CLCA Staff


Brittany Severino

Brittany graduated from James Madison University with a BBA in 2000 and worked in Recruiting and Consulting Services for 5 years before starting her family. She is mom of 2 teenage boys and a daughter, Molly the mini Bernedoodle. Brittany and Noelle were neighbors and friends first, and in 2008 as Noelle’s young business grew, she was welcomed in as an Administrative and Personal Assistant to Noelle. As she became knowledgeable of the business and Waiver Program, Brittany quickly took on new roles encompassing all aspects of Human Resources; from sourcing and recruiting, to hiring and staffing, to payroll and reporting. Brittany thoughtfully listens to our families’ needs and desired end goals for their child, and works with them to find the best team of service providers to make these achievements possible. She acts as the main point of contact for staff and families alike, providing continued support and guidance with staffing and service needs throughout their relationship with CLCA.
