Professional Focus

Brea is a marketing and communications professional, storyteller, social justice advocate and entrepreneur. Her strengths are in developing strategic communication plans and writing engaging content across a variety of platforms. Brea is a first-generation college graduate from East Oakland, California who’s committed to using her voice and experience in marketing communications to work with people from marginalized communities.

Personal Interests

Outside of working with the SSW, Brea loves music, dancing, baking and writing poetry. Before relocating to Portland she ran a small baking business, and recently completed a book that creatively explores how race, class, and gender impacts the lives of Black women. Brea lives by the motto that “self-care is an act of political warfare,” and is excited to join the School of Social Work to align her personal interests and professional background to advocate for social change.
