Brandi is the education reporter for the Midland Reporter-Telegram. She graduated from Texas Tech University in December 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and a cognate in health, science and environmental studies.

Prior to the Reporter-Telegram, she was an intern or staff writer for seven publications and completed her senior internship at Fort Worth Magazine in the summer of 2018.

She is passionate about issues in science, regarding environmental sustainability, global warming and climate change. Inevitably, she has also become more interested in social issues, including racism, poverty, world hunger, immigration and refugees, and animal and human welfare.

Through her work, she hopes to encourage and help empower others who may also be passionate about these issues.
