Grace Brannon is a third-year doctoral student studying Health and Organizational Communication in the Department of Communication at Texas A&M University. She earned her B.A. in Communication Studies and her M.A. in Communication at the University of Texas at Arlington. Grace’s research focuses on health in interpersonal relationships using mixed methods, investigating issues such as disclosure, information management, privacy issues, and health disparities.
Grace became interested in the Center for Disability and Development after becoming involved with her department’s Climate and Inclusion Committee in 2015. After some research, she decided applying to the Diversity Fellow program could provide much-needed disability- and diversity-specific training, fitting well with her research interests.
In her spare time, she enjoys reading fantasy novels, spending time with her husband, Jeremy, and their dog, Ewok. Grace is also active in the Bryan/College Station community, volunteering with a local United States Army Reserve unit Family Readiness Group.
