About Me

Hi, I’m Bri.

I’m a freelance writer and community manager. 

With seven years of experience in online marketing, I thrive off of storytelling and building engaging communities. I’ve had the pleasure of building social and community strategies for brands just starting out, to managing social media and community initiatives for well-established brands with millions of followers.
 
I’m also extremely passionate about environmental sustainability, and recently obtained my M.A. in Global Sustainability.

Bio

After growing up in Heathsville, Virginia, I moved to Boca Raton, Florida to pursue my Bachelor’s degree in Multimedia Journalism from Florida Atlantic University. Upon graduating I started my career in digital marketing – managing content, creating newsletters, social media management, and engaging communities.  I knew I had a knack for fostering communities when I attended the CMX Summit in Los Angeles a few years ago. Surrounded by hundreds of other community builders, something was very obvious – community is critical. Now, I spend my time sharing the value of establishing a community among company brands. I’m currently pursuing my Master’s in Global Sustainability. I’m passionate about ocean conservation efforts and hope to be able to bring more awareness to conservation efforts that help us protect and appreciate our oceans.  When I’m not strategizing how to build brand and community, I love spending time with my pup, Thor, learning how to play the piano, painting, and building my own passion project community, Act for Oceans.

Briana has all of the qualities I look for in a team member—energy, intelligence, and a can-do attitude. She is a problem solver who can thoughtfully consider the options and then take action. That makes her a great leader and a valuable asset to any organization.

Stacy Tornio Head of Content + Engagement, Underdog Games

Not only is Briana incredibly easy to work with, but she also really knows social media and content. She’s not someone who just throws up content without thinking about it—she’s really thoughtful in her approach and takes care with a brand’s voice. While working with her at Let Grow, she helped grow our social presence by leaps and bounds. She also worked on original social content ideas, led the development of our newsletter, and helped develop a new website. She’s one of those people who can truly do it all. If she doesn’t know something right away, she’ll figure it out. I would recommend Briana to anyone for content, social media, and brand work.

Briana sought out Dive In and asked if she could be a contributor. This is just one of the many examples of initiative I have seen Briana show since working with her. She is a driven and ambitious digital marker and writer. She is always willing to go the extra mile and help out whenever she can — always tying it together with an upbeat attitude. I’d recommend Briana to anyone looking for a talented and hard-working writer or marketer.
