Personal Information / Notes

Inspired by college-bound teens she worked with; Brande received a B.A. in Creative Writing from New York University in 2008. She writes the great American novel, and not so great American novels, on the side. Otherwise, her spare time is taken with traveling, hip-hop fitness (she should’ve been a breakdancer) and experiencing all that Central Ohio offers.

Why I enjoy working for United Way of Delaware County

"Several years ago, I was charmed by Delaware County’s inclusiveness, innovation and genuine concern for the community. United Way of Delaware County is no different. I love the drive my co-workers have to create and implement positive local change."
