Long story! –
Hello! Thanks for stopping by. Pull up a chair and stay a while.
Currently, Breanna is a graduate student at Southwestern College in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She is pursuing an M.A. in Art Therapy/Counseling. She is an active member of the New Mexico chapter of the American Art Therapy Association. Recently, she got elected as a student member of the board of the New Mexico Art Therapy Association. She begins her 2-year term in January 2018.
Proudly and mostly humbly, Breanna is a U.S. Air Force Veteran. She served at Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque from 2011-2016. She worked as a medic at the 377th Medical Group. She completed and received the Leadership Pathways certificate and coin in February 2016. She received her Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) Degree in Practical Nursing Technology in May 2015. (Associates level degree)
Breanna Cox has been published in numerous publications varying newspapers, magazines, and online sources. She had several photos published in the Annual Manual of 2009 and several other weeks of publication of the Cincinnati CityBeat. She had photos published in The Working Press, the newspaper for the SPJ Convention in 2009 – Friday’s Jail-N-Bail photo, Saturday portraits during a session, and Sunday motorcycle photos. (SPJ is Society of Professional Journalists.)
While in college, she served as a staff photographer with The Northerner, weekly student-run newspaper for Northern Kentucky University. She is especially proud of this image from a Pumpkin event – Messy event busts squash, as it was printed on the top fold of the front page that week.
In her early days, she learned how to shoot and write in her hometown of Hodgenville, Ky at the weekly newspaper in the LaRue County Herald News.
In her rare spare time, she enjoy all forms of paper crafting – handmade cards, scrapbooking, and mixed media.
She says – “As a photojournalist, I always look to show a visual story as if the viewer was there with me. I am a photo purist, meaning that I do little to no editing to my photos. That way the photos and stories remain true. My style is simply raw and “shoot from the hip” style.”
Breanna Cox is a 2009 graduate with two Bachelor of Arts degrees in Photography and Journalism from Northern Kentucky University. While a student, she was a staff photojournalist at NKU’s student newspaper The Northerner. She was a student member of the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA), Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ), and New Media Cincinnati.
