President
Brandie Evans
Brandie is a graduate of the University of Utah where she studied Political Science and Consumer and Community Studies. It is at the University of Utah where she fell in love with the nonprofit sector and the profound impact those organizations have on our community.

Brandie currently works as an Events Specialist for Intermountain Healthcare Foundation. Brandie also serves as a Volunteer State Representative for the Utah Chapter of the Children’s Tumor Foundation; an organization that helps to raise awareness and funds for Neurofibromatosis (NF) research, a disorder her young daughter suffers from. As an LPA Board member, she is excited to come on board and further increase LPA's partnerships with individuals and organizations throughout the community.

When she's not dancing away with her kids in the kitchen, Brandie loved to curling up with a good book, lounging in the sunshine, and making friends through the many organizations she volunteers with.
