As The California Museum's Communications and Marketing Director, Brenna specializes in creating integrated public relations and marketing campaigns to engage the Museum’s diverse audiences.

Formerly an art and creative director with 15 years of agency experience, Brenna studied advertising at the Academy of Art University and has worked on brands including Mercedes-Benz, Milgard Windows and Black Angus Steakhouse. Prior to joining the Museum in 2010, she co-directed the grassroots movement to gain support for U.S. journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee in 2009, resulting in 20 vigils and over 1 million followers during their 5 month captivity in North Korea.
