My passion for public education is what inspires me every day, advancing public education.”

She is committed to ensuring that every Bowie State University student develops an entrepreneurial mindset to achieve success in rapidly changing workplaces and communities.

She also brought the Saxbys Experiential Learning Program to the campus, which recently celebrated the opening of the coffee and social impact company’s first exclusively student-run café at an HBCU.”
“Dr. Breaux is a leading voice in 21st century education, and because of her extensive knowledge and expertise, she has been tapped to serve in multiple leadership roles.
