Young Education Professionals-Denver
Brandi is currently a Senior Research Manager at Relay Graduate School of Education and started her career as an elementary special education teacher in Iowa. As a teacher, she wanted to better understand how education policy decisions impact on-the-ground programs and practices, so obtained a graduate degree in Education Policy from the University of Pennsylvania.
She brings her passion for education to the YEP-Denver board with about 10 years of experience working to improve education programs, policies, and practices for students and educators. With a special interest in equity, much of her work highlights ways to support the most disadvantaged and underserved educators and students.
Leisurely, Brandi enjoys spending time with her amazing partner, friends, family, and cat as well as hiking in the Rockies.
