About Us

Nancy Bramlett Barnard

EDS is proud to be a locally-owned and family-operated business. In 1985, Erin Bramlett started Educational Development Services, Inc., to assist students on a one-to-one basis so they could grow and thrive throughout their educational journey. She believed in Preparing for Success and poured that into her students. In 2001, daughter, Nancy Barnard took over EDS after practicing engineering for 2 and law for 15 years. In 2006, Erin regretfully passed away.  Nancy proudly carries on her mother's legacy to the Jacksonville community, providing success for one child at a time. 

While Nancy loves math, her strength is as an interventionist for dyslexic students.  She combines the strengths of Orton-Gillingham programs such as Wilson Language and Really Great Reading and Lindamood Bell Learning Programs.  EDS is not a center for any of these.  Nancy can help formulate 504 / IEP documentation and advocate for students.. 


She is a member of the International Dyslexia Association, IDA, Independent Educational Consultant Association, IECA and is an ACE Educator with the ACT.. Nancy served for many years at Ortega United Methodist Church in the church operations as well its youth program.  She currently is on the Board of The Rotary Club of Jacksonville and the DePaul School of Northeast Florida. EDS supports The Sanctuary on 8th Street and Angels for Allison.  


Nancy's philosophy is Reaching New Heights.  She knows the struggles students endure and strives to help them reach new heights on their path to success.  Nancy and her husband, John, raised three children who attended public school for most of their educational career  Over her years with EDS, she has seen hundreds of students from most schools in the Jacksonville and surrounding area.  Each student presents unique and individual needs on their path to success.
