Una Ng-Brasch Named "Woman of Influence"

Una Ng-Brasch, administrative assistant in Colorado College's Education Department, has been named a "Woman of Influence" by the Colorado Springs Business Journal for her professional accomplishments and dedication to the community.

Ng-Brasch, along with her husband Ron Brasch, was recognized as Business Leader in the Arts in 2013 by the Regional Business Alliance and the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region. She also received the Rising Star Award in 2008 from the Colorado Springs Business Journal.

Currently Ng-Brasch serves as vice president on the board of the Colorado Springs Philharmonic and as a board member of the Pikes Peak Library District Foundation. She also is active with many other cultural and community nonprofits, including the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center.

Both education and a desire to make meaningful contributions were touchstones in Ng-Brasch's family life growing up in Toronto. She was born in New York, where her father worked as a scientist at Columbia University. Later, Ng-Brasch's mother became one of Canada's foremost theology educators while a professor at Emmanuel College at the University of Toronto.

"Growing up I was often the quietest person in the room, and I always appreciated whenever someone took the time to reach out to me. Now, I try to reach out individually to people so they can feel that they belong and are valued," Ng-Brasch said.

Ng-Brasch will be among the 13 women honored at the annual "Women of Influence" luncheon on Nov. 19.
