Brandy joined the UNA team in November 2018 as the Director of Operations. She has a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Bachelor of Science in Sociology from the University of Utah and is proud to be the first college graduate in her family. Throughout her education and professional experience, Brandy has been dedicated to being a positive impact in the world. Her work in the nonprofit community over the last ten years has led her to her life's passion: making our world a safe and happy one.  Prior to joining the UNA team, Brandy managed statewide membership services, created trainings, managed large events, helped to shape organizational policy, and contributed to strategic planning efforts - as well as tackling any tasks in front of her. She is excited to apply her rich nonprofit and life experiences to the nonprofits throughout the amazing state of Utah.

Brandy is passionate about improving the quality of life for underserved communities. She volunteers with a refugee community providing monthly activities for families and connections to resources to help with life needs. When she is not working or volunteering, you can find her travelling with her spouse and best friend! From road trips to flights around the world Brandy loves to land in unfamiliar places and then immerse herself in the culture and community.
