Brandy was born and raised in Baltimore, MD where she graduated from the A-Course engineering program at Baltimore Polytechnic Institute. She went on to graduate magna cum laude from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University in Greensboro, NC with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial and Systems Engineering.
Brandy is also a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, where she was an advisor for Delta GEMS (a mentoring program for girls ages 14-18) and piloted and served as the national program lead for TORCH (Taking Ownership and Responsibility for Childhood Health).
Brandy spends her professional days as the Large Bank Supervision Administrative Officer for the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency in the District of Columbia, but dedicates almost as much time to her passion for health and fitness. She has provided encouragement, nutritional consultations and advice, and personal training services under the designation of Braveheart Fitness.
Brandy’s propensity for mentoring and educating African-American youth coupled with her passion for physical and mental health have resulted in her contributions as a board member for CAN (Cure Alzheimer’s Now) Dream Foundation. The onset of dementia in her grandmother in 2014 further fuels her desire to find a cure and facilitate education, awareness, and family resources related to Alzheimer’s disease.
