Bryant has been working in the field of early childhood since 2002. She also has experience of working as a lead teacher at multiple early learning centers. She operated her own licensed home daycare from 2008-2019.

Bryant’s passion for coordinating social and community events can be seen through her work as an independent event planner since June 2018. Peoria County Board Chairman Andrew A. Rand says “The nomination of Ms. Bryant continues to strengthen the diverse knowledge of our board.” Rand added, “She brings not only experience with early childhood education but also familiarity with running a small business.”

Bryant has been born and bred in Peoria. She graduated with an Associate Degree in Human Services Child Development and General Education from Illinois Central College.

District 5 lies in Central Peoria.
