Breanna (Bre) Guzman, a native of Phoenix, has an exceptional tolerance for rising temperatures, both literally and figuratively. Bre has worked hard to maintain her composure and serenity in high-pressure situations, and nowhere was this more evident than when she was a field instructor at Northern Arizona University (NAU). Bre earned her Bachelor of Science in Public Health from NAU, and while there, she led educational programs in a variety of outdoor settings, where things didn’t always go as planned and she had to lead the way. Empathy, patience, and a glass-half-full attitude helped her excel in this role. She has applied these skills in various classroom settings, including delivering drug prevention presentations to all ages, facilitating STEM workshops in tribal schools, and providing online family strengthening lessons to foster and kinship families. Bre has paid great attention to how people react and respond in groups under stressful situations and discovered that if someone consciously strove to remain calm, the entire dynamic shifted. As the Youth Prevention Manager, she wants to provide a calming presence for the prevention team. She understands the value of being heard as a self-described professional listener and wants to bring that to her team and the youth she serves. She can only do so if she actively looks after herself, which she does in her spare time by roaming with her dog, reading, crafting, eating, and socializing with friends and family. At the end of the day, Bre is determined to create inclusive spaces wherever her work may take her to allow youth to express themselves openly and safely.
