By: Brianna Schad, American Red Cross Intern
My name is Brianna Schad, and I am blessed to be spending my third summer interning with the American Red Cross in Manitowoc. I just completed my fourth year of college and second full year at Concordia University in Mequon, WI. I am working towards my Master’s Degree in Occupational Therapy, with a projected graduation date in December of 2015. I hope to work with the geriatric population in a skilled nursing facility in the future!
I was born and raised in Manitowoc, WI. I come from a relatively small family, with one younger brother (age 20). Brandon just completed his sophomore year at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, where he is studying Computer Science. In our free time, my family and I love to go fishing, biking, and boating. And of course, we always enjoy cheering on the Green Bay Packers and the Milwaukee Brewers!
Prior to my first internship opportunity, I had no idea how involved the Red Cross was in our community! I quickly familiarized myself with their many facets once I began. On a daily basis, the Red Cross is helping those most in need and changing lives. I’m looking forward to another summer of learning and growing as a person through this internship! I’m excited for all of the opportunities and challenges that may arise.
