Dr. Shelly Neal

My name is Shelly Neal, Ph.D., and I work as the Vice Chancellor of Strategic Initiatives at Brandman University. I have known Dr. Jalin Johnson for almost ten years, and during some of that time I served as her supervisor. Dr. Johnson is a positive, professional individual who is well liked and respected by her students and peers. She is a team player and is always willing to help out on any project she can benefit.

Dr. Johnson transferred from my division to the School of Business and Professional Studies. She continues to help the Outreach Division by providing training sessions on group calls, representing faculty at community outreach events, and presenting at professional conferences and workshops. She is incredibly patient and generous with her experience and expert knowledge.

Dr. Johnson is very loyal to Brandman University and we are fortunate to be represented by someone of her caliber. I understand she is up for promotion. I have no hesitation giving her my highest recommendation. We are lucky to have her as part of our Brandman team. If you have any questions or need additional information, please feel free to contact me.

Sincerely, Shelly Neal, Ph.D.

Dr. Jalin Johnson is the quintessential “go to” person for numerous and diverse areas of subject matter expertise. It is a tremendous benefit to have a faculty member with extensive experience in outreach (sales), marketing and student advisement (both in education and business) while working predominantly in her current role as Assistant Professor. Dr. Johnson is incredibly well-received and regularly needed by the Outreach Team for presentations, concept meetings with new and existing partners and for training to name a few.

Intelligent and team player are two words that come to mind when I think of Dr. Jalin Johnson.

I came to know Jalin when we began working together over ten years ago, at Brandman University, in the Outreach Division.

She was a dependable colleague to me in Outreach and in her current capacity, as a faculty member, she continues to be an asset to us in Outreach.

I remain in awe of Dr. Johnson’s ability to lead a presentation and articulate a concept.

Dr. Johnson’s students are fortunate to have her as a professor and a resource; I’ve seen her dedication to them first-hand, and it is to be commended.

I’ll never forget her ability to motivate our team through her thoughtfulness and creatively; her talents are missed in our meetings. As a team member or leader, Dr. Jalin Johnson earns my highest recommendation.

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for Dr. Jalin Johnson. In my opinion, Dr. Johnson has been a huge asset to Brandman University since I met her in 2009. Dr. Johnson and I previously worked together in the strategic business development department, both as managers of community relations. As we moved through our long tenure at Brandman, Dr. Johnson completed her doctorate degree and moved into a full-time faculty member in the School of Business.

I have been fortunate enough to get to continue working with Dr. Johnson, even in her role as Faculty. We have worked together during our Ed.D. professional development days, immersions, and, more recently, Dr. Johnson asked me to participate in her Professional Development Day for the Inland and High Desert campuses. The day was so amazing, with a great group of faculty members present. Dr. Johnson planned a full day of professional learning which was inclusive, interactive and all around collaborative. I was proud to represent outreach at this event. Dr. Johnson is simply a pleasure to work with! She is always 100% willing and able to support the outreach division in our efforts to promote this program. I highly recommend Dr. Johnson be awarded a position of associate profession. She would be simply amazing.

Feel free to call me directly if you have any further questions or concerns.
