As a new law school graduate, Braun volunteered with Big Brothers Big Sisters. The experience motivated her to focus on mentoring, both personally and professionally. 

Today, Braun, an estate planning attorney at Milwaukee-based Godfrey & Kahn, serves as a formal mentor to two associate attorneys and is active on multiple firm committees that help attract, retain and advance young professionals. Outside the office, she promotes the advancement of women in law through her involvement in the Association for Women Lawyers.

Beyond mentorship, Braun works with law students to offer free legal aid through the Marquette Legal Clinic and previously served as an adjunct professor at the University of Wisconsin Law School. Through her involvement with Wills for Heroes, she helps first responders put their affairs in order.

Braun also serves the community through board service and other involvement with organizations such as the Wisconsin Humane Society, Susan G. Komen, Greater Milwaukee Young Professional Advisor Council and others.
