Meet the My Person Foundation Team!
Brittany Cannon, Memorial Hermann Ambulatory Services Division, Dance Teacher, Former NFL Cheerleader
Brittany was born and raised in The Woodlands, Texas graduating from The Woodlands High School in 2006. She then attended Louisiana State University and went on to graduate from St. Edwards University in Austin, Texas earning her bachelor’s degree specializing in public relations, communications and marketing. She has 10 plus years mentoring experience working with young women. Brittany also loved having the opportunity to work with special needs students in both high school and college.
After graduating college, Brittany moved back to Houston. Brittany was excited to begin focusing on her career, but also missed dancing and getting together with her peers and giving back to her community. Because of this, Brittany decided to try out to be an NFL cheerleader where she could both dance and give back to the city of Houston. During her time as an NFL cheerleader, Brittany was fortunate enough to learn the value of having a sisterly bond with a group of trustworthy and supportive young women. That by considering friendships as a “sisterhood” type bond, you could connect many different young women on a much deeper level. Brittany now shares these values by mentoring teens while teaching dance and cheer classes. Through her relationships with her students, Brittany discovered a great need for young relatable mentors for our community’s youth. For this reason, Brittany reached out to her dear friend Danielle Padron and together created the My Person Foundation.
Brittany currently resides in Spring, Texas. She volunteers for different charities and was the 2015 Dancing with the Lake Houston Stars winner which donated $10,000 to YMCA charities. Brittany is a member of The Woodlands United Methodist Church, enjoys teaching dance and cheer, and loves spending time with her special rescue dog, Remington.
Danielle Padron, Dental Practice Office Manager, Former NFL Cheerleader
Danielle was born and raised in Houston Texas. After high school, Danielle knew she either wanted to be in the medical or dental field. Now seven years later and with the love and support from her family, she worked her way up from receptionist, assistant; lead dental assistant, marketing to now an Office Manager at BLVD Dentistry. In between her work in the dental field, she took a break and worked directly for the CEO of Sideline Spirit Cheer Company.
In 2011, Danielle's biggest dream came true when she was selected a Houston Texans Cheerleader. She served two wonderful years on the squad. During her second year on the squad, she had the honor of being one of the four captains chosen for the season. Danielle knows she is very blessed and so grateful for the opportunity to be an NFL Cheerleader. The two years that she was on the cheerleading team, she met some of her closest friends. Danielle knows the value of how important friendships are. She met her best friend Brittany and together they decided to start My Person Foundation.
Danielle is involved with community service, including serving at Houston Food Bank, San Jose Clinic, and adopting families for Christmas. She is currently a cheer coach for the SCFL League in The Woodlands. She is happily married with two dogs. Danielle enjoys her time with her family and friends.
Danielle's hope for this charity is to bring the young women in our community together. To love, protect, trust, and uplift each other. She hopes to spread the word that it's okay to be you and to be different.
Chelsea Degueyter, Business & Marketing Medical Director, Miss Houston Teen USA 2007
Sometimes in life you will see amazing opportunities to take part in, and once I heard about this organization and truly understood the purpose, I immediately knew I wanted to be part of this Circle of Sisterhood. As a mentor, I want to give these young ladies a chance to voice their opinions and feelings without being judged. Everyone deserves to have a someone that never gives up on them and not only believes in them, but insists that they become the best they can be. I hope to teach these girls to become strong leaders, boost their self-esteem and get them excited about the bright future that awaits them!
Rachel Baker, Patient Access Representative/Accounts Receivable
I knew that I wanted to become a mentor when someone very close to me lost someone very important to them due to suicide. Once I learned the goals and the hopes for this foundation, I knew I had to be a part of it. These girls need to know that no matter what they are dealing with, that we are here for them, and they are not alone. It is important to teach these young ladies self-worth, woman empowerment, and lastly to truly love yourself! Life is not easy, and each day brings new challenges, but having a good group of friends you can count on, is truly a blessing. That is what I hope these girls learn from this group.
Jessica Simino, Regulatory Analyst, Oil & Gas Field
After learning of the tragedies that have deeply affected our community I feel an overwhelming responsibility to help these young girls—to take action and create change. For me, being a mentor means that I am able to empower girls with the tools necessary for a healthy self-esteem and confidence that are essential to the transition from young girl into adulthood.
