Get to Know Brandi
Brandi was born in Des Moines, Iowa in 1991 and has loved this city ever since. A tumultuous childhood and unstable living conditions built into her a strong sense of compassion and a drive to help those in need. These qualities became her guiding light through all situations in her life.
Brandi has been involved in volunteering since she was a child and has continued to do so throughout high school, college, and into adulthood. While attending Iowa State University's College of Design, she volunteered her time annually to the Special Olympics summer games. Brandi has been volunteering her time and design abilities to an animal protection non-profit since 2011 and joined the board shortly after getting involved.
After graduating from Iowa State University, Brandi soon moved to Des Moines to begin raising her family in her favorite city. Today Brandi runs her own graphic design and photography business in addition to being a stay at home mom. Her husband Taylor, daughter Cobain (5), son Remus (2), and their three cats Stanley, Charles, and Kit live on the South Side of Des Moines.
