Board Member Profile - Andrea Brady

Andrea Brady is serving her third term on the Board. She began serving her first term in January 2010. Her current term started January 2018 and ends December 31, 2021. This is her 12th year on the Board. She has served as President of the Board for six years. This year she serves as Vice-President. She is the Board liaison to the Milford Schools Foundation. 

Mrs. Brady is a marketing professional. She started her career at Proctor and Gamble in brand management and has owned a marketing consulting firm, called SchoolComm Consultants, for 20 years. She also serves as Executive Director for the Milford Miami Township Chamber of Commerce and as Program Manager for the Cincinnati Chamber’s Building Cultural Competence program.

Her and her husband Ed built a house on acreage in Miami Township in 1993, then moved to a neighborhood inside the city of Milford in 1999. Their daughter, Natalie, graduated from Milford High School and now studies at Northern Kentucky University. Natalie is a vocal jazz singer who performs locally and around the country. 

“This area has such a strong sense of community. We love how people come together to help one another. The community has grown so much since we first arrived in 1993,” she said. “It’s exciting to see. The exceptional shops, restaurants, and services that are now an integral part of our fabric. I believe our exceptional schools help drive this, as they attract people looking for a safe, successful community that also provides a high-quality education for their children.”

Mrs. Brady became involved with the district in 2003 when her daughter was in kindergarten. After volunteering at school, working with levy committees, the Business Advisory Council, and other organizations, she decided to run for school board in 2009. “My goals were to help the district become financially stable while still improving the quality of what we provided our students."

Milford’s teachers and administrators are always looking for new ways of reaching students and enhancing the opportunities the district provides, she said. 

“Everyone in our district - from our part-time support staff to our superintendent - is truly committed to what is best for our students. Because of this attitude of lifelong learning and continuous improvement, I believe Milford students graduate ready to conquer whatever their next steps in the world may be.”

Mrs. Brady’s goals as a Board member are to continue to explore options and take the next steps to replace the junior high building. She would like to evolve and enhance the programs and services offered to students in the classroom. “We are learning so much about the way students of today learn, and there are so many opportunities to adapt the way we deliver education to help them achieve at higher levels,” she said. Another focus is on communications and ensuring messaging reaches everyone in the community in new, creative and cost-effective ways. 

“My focus since I began on the Board has been ensuring we manage the district in a fiscally responsible manner, stretching our funds to reduce the burden on our local taxpayers as much as possible,” she said.

Mrs. Brady loves to read, learn, travel nationally and abroad and to explore in this region and beyond. “We enjoy checking out new businesses and opportunities in music, arts,  exhibits, theater, festivals, and restaurants, with friends and on our own,” she said. “One of our favorite things to do is act as ‘jazz groupies’ and attend as many of our daughter’s gigs as possible.”
