Brooke Dresel Wellness Center Manager since 2012

Q: What is your job description?
A: “I will be working with the Wellness Center attendants and the fitness instructors to incorporate schedules and activities for students, faculty, and staff.”

Q: What do you like most about working at OCCC?
A: “ … The camaraderie that we have built [and] the way that we help one another and work together. Working with the students too, I would definitely say. Being able to help affect them in a positive way.”

Q: What are some of your hobbies?
A: “Working out. I would say probably just being with my kid, watching him play sports, being with my family, going to church activities.”

Q: Are you involved in any sports/have you ever been?
A: “I played softball growing up, but for the most, it’s just been pretty much after school. I did softball, I did basketball. I like to run. That’s kind of my hobby now.”

Q: What are your favorite teams?
A: “University of Oklahoma football. We like [the] Thunder, we like OU basketball.”

Q: What is your favorite thing about sports/fitness?
A: “I would say that it’s more about the intrinsic benefits that a person would get from exercising … the way that it makes you feel about yourself, not necessarily how it will change you physically or appearance-wise, but just being able to come in and relieve a little bit of tension and become stronger and healthier. That, to me, is the most important aspect that you can gain from working out.”

Q: Do you believe that people should keep up a healthy lifestyle?
A: Oh, of course. Especially when you are a student and you have all these other stresses and factors that play into how you’re going to perform as a whole.
