Photo Booth Confessional: Karla Brennen

Posted by Drake, March 20, 2017

Get to know the people of the Drake in a new series we're calling Photo Booth Confessional. Through the hustle and bustle of it all, we're taking time to get a snapshot of all of the vibrant personalities that make up the Drake fam and passing along a question for the next Draker in our own version of the classic telephone game.


She's a true wonder woman with a sunny attitude and a lifelong love of the County. Meet Drake Devonshire’s new general manager, Karla Brennen.

What do you like to do in the County on your days off?
Depending on my companions: Visit the beaches or orchards with my three boys then stop for some locally made ice cream; visit wineries with my girlfriends and some of our amazing restaurants with my husband. Ohh and The Mustang Drive-In is also a fun favourite!

What is the best way to explore the County?
With a friend or your family: head to a place you haven’t explored. You can do so much with a vehicle and a GPS. Then you need to park, get out and wander. Pack a picnic, a bathing suit and some sunglasses. There is so much to experience!

Which living person do you most admire?
Queen Elizabeth II

What is your favourite catchphrase?
“Let’s make our own sunshine today!”

What is one thing that your coworkers don’t know about you?
I love fishing!

What is your most treasured possession?
A bone china tea cup from my mother’s childhood tea set, it has survived two house fires.

Which historical figure do you most identify with?
Wonder Woman

Who are your heroes in real life?
Women of all kind who have pushed the bar and raised each other up!

What is your motto?
“Esse quam videri” (to be rather than seem to be)

In the last 24 hours, what has been your greatest achievement?
Making time for my work family, my 3 boys and my husband seem easy. I love my life!

What's one question you would ask another Draker?
What’s your why? I love knowing what drives people to do the things they love.
