When asked what she likes most about her current role, without hesitation she answered, "The people!" She further explained, "I get to work with an incredible team of colleagues, fellow alumni, interesting employers, and fantastic students. This role is a great combination of marketing, sales, development, recruitment, and most importantly, education. I love that every day is different, and that everyday I have the opportunity to contribute in a meaningful way to the success of the people I work with and for."
When asked what is most challenging about her current role, Breanne smiled and again answered, "The people." She continued "Behind every resume or interview is a person with goals and fears and feelings. It is often difficult to deliver tough feedback or criticism, but I know that it is necessary for the professional development process of our students and will ultimately help them to better represent themselves and Pacific."
Breanne is known amongst her students and colleagues as someone who takes a personal interest in each of them as individuals - her door is always open and she is always ready and willing to help in any way she can. She commented "As an alumnus myself, I have a vested interest in the success of this place and its people!" When she is not on campus working with students or in the field working with employers, Breanne enjoys reading, cooking, her piano, her pets, and spending time with family in her hometown of Lodi. She and her husband are excited to welcome their first child in June!
