Why I Wear Green
As a former UND Hockey Cheerleader, I know the incredible feeling of unity, passion and support that makes UND special. It brings me so much joy to celebrate that contagious spirit with UND alumni and friends. I am proud to be a part of the UNDAAF and thrilled to showcase the power of UND alumni and friends’ generosity, being a product of it myself.
As Associate Director of Development, Brea works to keep our donors in the loop, providing information about what’s happening on the UND campus – from programs and facilities to events and athletics, and the ever-evolving needs of students. She also communicates how the generosity of our donors positively affects the students and the University. “I’m thrilled to connect with fellow alumni and friends, showcasing the remarkable impact of their generosity on students, faculty and the Grand Forks community,” she said.
Brea has a lot of hobbies! She enjoys cooking, which she learned from her late grandmother – a UND sociology professor, and attending concerts, a passion she shares with her grandfather, a UND employee for 43 years. She also like to travel, spend time with family and attend UND Athletic events.
