In June of 2014, Briana packed up her Kia Soul and made the 1,700-mile trek from the small town of Hopatcong, New Jersey to Austin, Texas in hopes of starting a new career. The Susquehanna University graduate majored in Communications, and most previously worked as a counselor for a nonprofit agency in New Jersey.
As operations manager for Raise Your Hand Texas, Briana uses her “Jill of all trades” flair to facilitate day-to-day activities — from managing financial reports and human resources to assisting with projects in the marketing and program departments.
Briana is a pop culture aficionado and expert roadtripper. She is just 10 states shy from joining the “All Fifty Club”.
The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you. - B.B. King
