Associate Director


“To develop rich and meaningful relationships with alumni and friends of EMU who are passionate about the mission and vision of the university and the high caliber, well-rounded graduates it produces.”

Braydon graduated cum laude from EMU in 2011 with a B.S. in biology (pre-med concentration) and a minor in theatre. While there, he served as president of the Pre-Professional Health Society, co-founded Bellaccord – a men’s acapella group, performed in several theatre productions, and – most importantly – met his wife, Heidi Muller ’10 Hoover. He is co-president of the Class of 2011 and a recipient of the Cords of Distinction.

Upon graduation, Braydon began working for the office of Alumni & Parent Relations as the Database Specialist and Milepost Editor. He served as co-chair and then chair of the Alumni Engagement Task Force, chair of the Homecoming Cross-Cultural Subcommittee, secretary of Haverim, and advised both the Homecoming Committee and Executive Committee of the Alumni Council.

He is thrilled to join the already stellar Development team as Associate Director for the Shenandoah Valley and Virginia and is looking forward to building relationships with the local constituency.
