Where were you born?
Seattle, WA. I lived here my whole life, Mill Creek & Silver Lake area, is my hometown! Traveled a lot, lived in Stanwood, WA, and moved to Park City, Utah for a short time (wow, it’s amazing there.)
In your free time what do you like to do?
Hike, go on walks outside, run marathons, spend quality time with friends and family, give back to my community through charity/ nonprofits, travel, blog, shop, model for brands I believe in, work out, ride dirt bikes & mountain bikes, spend weekends at the dirt bike track helping in the pits, and experience new things often.
What is your greatest accomplishment?
I was the first to graduate high school in my family, go to college (University of Washington), and graduate! I also, set a personal record this year
(2018) for running a half marathon. My goal was to run it in under 2 hours and I completed the Seattle Rock N Roll Half Marathon in 1 hour and 55 min.
Something others might not know about you:
I am the oldest of 5 siblings and the youngest are 7 & 5 (they could be my babies and often people think they are, haha). Also, I have worked in the Media and Tech industry for the last 7 years. I am a Product Innovation Manager at a software development & tech innovation company while also teaching at least one fitness class everyday.
A short biography: Briana is a very active person who makes use of her time by taking every opportunity to enjoy the beauty of life, try something new, and chase her dreams. She functions best with a full schedule especially when it’s full of things she loves. Briana will help anyone who needs it, is friendly, has lots of energy, and always tries to find the positive in every situation. She has been a coach to Girls on the Run, volleyball, and cheer teams, and has been an athlete since a very young age (running, competitive cheer, dance, volleyball, basketball, and group fitness classes).

One day, Briana will open up her own fitness boutique and is blessed to be surrounded by such supportive people, like Jen, The Barre Owner.
