What’s on your desk? Dr. Shelly Neal
Vice Chancellor Shelly Neal, who oversees Brandman University’s strategic initiatives including Outreach, loves her job and art. “I have the best job at this university,” she said. To help explain Brandman University to visitors, she has a wall of photos dedicated to the Brandman story in her office. But just below the stenciled “every picture has a story to tell” is a favorite piece of art featuring the names and colors loved by artists.
When she’s not enjoying the university’s best job by reaching out the community to build mutually beneficial opportunities and thus growing the university, Neal likes to spend her time creating oil paintings. One of her pieces, her version of Brandman’s Irvine building, helps decorate Chancellor Gary Brahm’s office. A fan of impressionist painting, Neal is also devoted to Laguna Beach’s summer art festivals, which she says she’s been going to as long as she can remember.
