Shandah Brannen joined Beaver Creek Wetlands Association as the Administrative Coordinator in May 2022. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Wilmington College of Ohio with a Major in Criminal Justice and Minor in Social and Political Studies. Environmental conservation and education are very dear to Shandah’s heart. She is proud to support BCWA’s mission.
Shandah worked for Montgomery County Juvenile Court for 5 years after college. First as a Work Therapy Specialist and then as a Juvenile Probation Officer. She left the court to pursue a career in Environmental Education and Conservation at the end of 2009. Shandah was the volunteer coordinator for the Feed Dayton Urban Farming Program in 2010. She then joined Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm as a Naturalist intern in 2010-2011. She also supported Green County Parks and Trails seasonally in 2011 as a Naturalist Aid. Life circumstance caused her to pause this pursuit for the next 10 years. During that time, she grew her family and worked providing world-class customer service in the e-commerce industry. She supervised high-performing phone, chat, and email customer service teams for BathandBodyWorks.com and VictoriasSecret.com.
Shandah shares her home in Xenia, OH with her husband, Scott, and two school age children. They spend their free time camping, gardening, and hiking.
