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.
