In November 2013, she was awarded KyAEA Museum Educator of the Year while also being reappointed to serve on the Kentucky Arts Council Board of Directors by Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear. Rudloff served in multiple roles at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts in Nashville, Tenn., while continuing a career as a professional visual artist and community engagement consultant. She also served as the curator of the Nashville International Airport’s Arts at the Airport Foundation, where she designed and curated new exhibitions and exhibition spaces while maintaining the airport’s art collection.

Rudloff has served as the Curator of the Johnny Cash Collection, Tour Coordinator of the At Home On Tour traveling exhibition and an educator in Kentucky’s juvenile justice system. Rudloff believes art education is an important component to the economic growth of an area and works to cultivate art experiences within her own region. Holding true to the belief we should never take a second for granted, one rarely sees Rudloff standing still, but always in constant motion.

Some of Brandie’s accomplishments include winning the “Search for a Superstar” competition at Treasure Bay Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi; Michael’s Star Search; and Henderson Ford Star Search. Brandie represented the state of Mississippi at the regional finals for the Colgate Country Showdown, singing an original composition. She was also one of 11 women to represent the United States in the world wide singing competition Avon Voices. One of the many moments Brandie enjoyed as a musician was being able to play Grizabella in a production of Cats.
Brandie has appeared as Master of Ceremony for The Angel Ride Foundation events in Fairhope, Alabama since 2007, also performing her original material. She has also opened for such artists as Gregg Allman, Mustang Sally, Wet Willie, the Marshall Tucker Band, and John Michael Montgomery.
