Brianna Pate


Enthusiastic and energetic, on and off the field.

Brianna Pate’s career in being a positive and welcoming team player has been in the works for years. As a student at Western Michigan University (WMU), she spent four years rooting for the Broncos with the WMU cheer team, her last being captain. She continues to love being active, and especially enjoys a round of golf or match of tennis with her husband, Matt.

Bri’s enthusiasm goes beyond the field as she brings a positive attitude to all she does. After spending four months studying Spanish in Spain, Bri strengthened her ability to communicate with anyone and everyone. A natural-born people-person, Bri uses her role on our creative team to connect with her audience, whether it’s through an e-blasts, design work or behind-the-scenes operations for events.

Southwest Michigan is home for Bri, and she loves soaking in and contributing to what the community has to offer; her typical weekend includes a trip to the farmer’s market and serving at her church with her husband. In her free time, Bri loves to read, because she believes it’s the cheapest way to travel.

I’m not happy, I’m cheerful. There’s a difference. A happy woman has no cares at all. A cheerful woman has cares but has learned how to deal with them.
