003: Breanna Butler | Thriving in a Male Dominated Field & Working With Your SO

I’m so happy to bring you episode #3 of the Brave Enough Podcast! I cannot wait for you to get to know the wonderful, talented, and driven Breanna Butler.

Breanna and I met almost 4 years ago when I started doing freelance TV hosting for the community access station she worked for. Breanna is a strong, talented, and driven woman, who found her dream job (and dream man) in her quint hometown. Trust me when it comes to Breanna: though she be little, she is fierce! She’s been such an inspiration and I know you guys are going to love her as much as I do.

Bre and I spend this episode talking about career, life, love, our fur children, The Bachelor, and everything in between.

In This Episode:
