Up Close

An optimist, adventurer, and self-proclaimed travel geek, Brianna is constantly exploring places or marketing them. When she’s not, she’s likely reading travel memoirs, watching documentaries or researching which location to cross off her bucket list next.

Helping places brand themselves and tell their stories has allowed Brianna’s passion to become her purpose, and she still can’t believe she’s lucky enough to spend every day doing her dream job.

Where You’ll Find Brianna on a Weekend

As a transplant to Colorado, Brianna still has a thousand places to see and mountains to climb. During one of Denver’s beautiful 300 days of sunshine, she can be found hiking, exploring new towns or attending one of the city’s abundant culture festivals.

If she’s not out and about enjoying her wonderful new city, she’s appealing to her introvert nature, staying tucked away in her apartment watching sitcom marathons, cooking and competitively playing board games.

Fun Facts about Brianna:

For the Love of Culture: A lover and learner of cultures, Brianna is always trying to learn about new places and customs. She and her boyfriend have monthly culture nights, where they draw a random country from a box, then spend the day making traditional food, playing games, listening to music and watching movies from that country. Particularly drawn towards Spanish culture, she has an affinity for Latin music, food, dancing, culture, and of course, the melodic Spanish language. She is working toward Spanish fluency and hopes to take a backpacking trip around the world at some point in her lifetime.

Working for the Mouse: In 2013, Brianna did a four-month internship at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida as a resort concierge. During that time, she explored the parks for free (and frequently!), walked the underground series of tunnels beneath the Magic Kingdom, and even had the opportunity to trick-or-treat around Disney World dressed up as Anastasia. Aside from the perks, interacting with guests from all over the world was one of the best parts of the job.

The Mountains Are Calling: Growing up in a small valley in Virginia, surrounded on all sides by the Blue Ridge Mountains, Brianna has always had a special place in her heart for the mountains. Drawn to Denver by the stunningly beautiful Rocky Mountains, she loves to hike and camp any chance she gets. She’ll take the mountains over the ocean any day!
