Bryn Campbell

Client Strategist

AKA “Chipper Campbell

With a people-first philosophy, Bryn is laser focused on determining the best strategies to fulfill the unique needs of each of our partner schools. She came to this position with extensive experience in higher education, having worked at several colleges and universities of varying size. Bryn puts her considerable skills to use building and expanding relationships, developing long-term pipeline strategies, and gaining knowledge of the key differentiators to promote for each of our partners.

This Penn State Nittany Lion (can we get an enthusiastic, “We Are”?) has always been an impressive athlete. She was an amateur canoe racer in both high school and college. And Bryn’s mother was one of the inventors of ultimate frisbee. While it might surprise you that Bryn herself never played, she does have a killer throw!

What do you enjoy most about your position at Spark451 and why?

As a client strategist, I believe we can achieve immediate goals while simultaneously preparing for the future classes — it can be both/and, not either/or with creative thinking!

What do you love most about working in higher education and why?

The people! While technically all are competing for students, the field is collaborative, not competitive. We freely share ideas, support each other, and are there to be an ear when something is not going as planned. Everyone is looking out for the best interests of these students and their families.

What is one super power you’d want to possess and why?

Time control! I’d love to stop time during the best moments and add time on to a day when I need it.

Beach vacation or city vacation and why?

BEACH. I’m an Aquarius, and water truly rejuvenates me. I love the heat of the sun, the crashing of the waves, and the feel of the sand in my toes. Fun fact, I won’t go in the water at the Jersey Shore (the closest beach to me) — it’s too cold for me! I only go in the ocean in the south.
