Michayla Braun
Residence Hall Director (Naber Hall and Duplexes)

Michayla Braun is the current Residence Hall Director for Naber Hall and Duplexes. She is a Marian University alumna, where she graduated in 2014 with a B.S. in Mathematics. The friendly and accepting atmosphere made Marian feel like home, which is why she chose to come back as a Hall Director. Michayla has a passion for helping others feel safe and accepted for who they are. She hopes to encourage others to grow into better versions of themselves by sharing her own experiences and hearing others’ stories well. Michayla enjoys good conversations, and when people choose her to laugh and cry with. She hopes that others are able to find home at Marian the same way that she did.“
