Branker enters the coaching ranks following a stellar four-year career at The Beach. As a senior, Branker was an NCAA Regional qualifier in the 100m, 200m and 4x100 relay. She picked up numerous honors on the season, garnering All-Region accolades in both sprints, while also earning All-Big West recognition in each of the three events in which she competed. At the conference meet, Branker established the third-fastest time in school history in the 100m (11.52) and 200m (23.53).
In 2007, Branker was again a multiple all-conference and NCAA Regional performer in the 100, 200 and 4x100, while also competing in the 4x400 at the Big West championships. She led her 400m relay team to its first-ever NCAA appearance by placing second at the regional meet.
In her career, Branker was a member of three of the 49ers' top five 4x100 relay squads, including the school-record holding quartet that ran a blistering 44.86 seconds in 2007. During her time at The Beach, Branker also etched her name in the school's indoor record books as she sits at No. 2 in the 200m and No. 3 in the 60m.
Branker was also a team captain (2008) and two-time team MVP (2007-08).
Branker graduated from LBSU with a bachelor's degree in kinesiology in 2008. She spent the summer following graduation coaching at local camps and clinics.
