Braden is a student athlete at Franklin & Marshall College who is passionate about destigmatizing mental health both on campus and in her community. Braden plans to major in psychology, is the secretary of the Active Minds club on campus and plays field hockey and spring track & field. Braden’s goal is to help grieving families cope with the loss of a loved one to suicide and ultimately help reduce the rate of suicides in her community. Her motivation to help others comes from the loss of her own father to suicide - she does not want others to have to deal with the heartbreak that she felt and wants people to know that they are not alone. Braden loves her dog, Sandy, that lives with her at Franklin & Marshall and truly loves and values the relationships she has with her family. Braden loves to watch football, be active, eat great food, take trips to New York City and visit Central Market in downtown Lancaster.
