Brenda Mahler, a senior studying organizational communication with a certificate in Women’s and Gender Studies, works with the Women’s Center as a publication assistant for the new Survivor Advocacy Program. “I feel like I am helping publicize a really great program. Every new publication that is created has the potential to reach another survivor,” said Brenda, whose job includes making brochures, fliers, posters and creating website content to inform Ohio University students about the Survivor Advocacy Program. Brenda is also training to become a peer advocate

Brenda’s favorite Women’s Center event is Take Back the Night Rally and March, which takes place in the Spring, and said she is enjoying her first quarter working at the Women’s Center. “I absolutely love everyone I work with and what we are working for,” she said. “Whenever I go to work I feel like I am accomplishing something for the good of our campus community.”

Brenda’s areas of academic interest are interpersonal and gender communication and after graduation, she plans to join Americorps for a year in Athens county, then find a job in non-profit work that focuses on women and possibly attend graduate school.

She also said she loves music festivals, analyzing reality television, the Athens music scene (Brenda is an active member of the scene with her band, The Fayble Family Band) and miniature schnauzers, especially her boyfriend’s miniature schnauzer named Muggles.
