Nicholas Brees

Lead Career Peer Advisor

Hi! I am Nicholas Brees (He/Him) and I am working in the Burwell Center for Career Achievement as a Peer Career Advisor. I am really looking forward to helping the community that is my peers with some of the same topics I was struggling with not even a year ago. As a Peer Advisor, I am available for drop in appointments for help with resumes, cover letters, or any of the fun work that is applying for jobs/internships.

I was born in San Jose, California but moved out to Bend, Oregon during the formative years of my life. Out there, I found a new passion for the outdoors while climbing mountains, spelunking in lava caves, and swimming in any body of water I can find. Two of my most memorable adventures would be a three hour rafting trip along the Rogue River while a firefighting helicopter was refilling their tank fifty yards away from our raft while we were navigating class three rapids, and hiking/backpacking in the Owyhee River Wilderness Area, one of the most untapped and Edenic places in the Pacific North West.

I came to DU for the amazing Daniels School of Business programs as well as the mountains and nature. I hope to learn how to ski this year and take more advantage of the Colorado Mountains. I hope to see you all in the Burwell Center at some point this year!
