Brandon’s Story
Roundabout Educator
Brandon intended to teach, but found himself less than passionate about the classroom. So, he got a master’s degree in human resources and organizational learning, then landed a position in HR at Target. After learning to lead and develop employees, Brandon searched for a way to make a difference—and it happened to be as a director at Galileo.
