Brandi worked in the field of public relations and marketing for 13 years prior to pursuing teaching as a full-time profession. Before teaching full-time, she served as the Associate Director of Public Relations at Columbia College where she led the media relations efforts. Prior to that, she worked at the University of Missouri and Northwestern Oklahoma State University holding a myriad of marketing and public relations roles that included design, writing, some digital advertising, photography and assessment efforts.
Brandi enjoys finding ways to help students explore career fields by providing opportunities for real-world experiences. Students who have taken her classes have planned, promoted and implemented sporting events on campus, created and facilitated advertising campaigns for clients in the local community, and created public relations plans for local businesses.
In 2016, Brandi was named a Fishman Fellow. She, along with a colleague who teaches graphic design, created a student-led marketing and promotion agency, Columbia College Creative Consultants, to help student entrepreneurs at the College.
