Brianna grew up in Mechanicsburg, PA. She attended Harrisburg Area Community College where she earned her Associate Degree in General Studies and then continued on to earn her Bachelors in Communication at Cornell University in 2017. She currently works as a Marketing/Culture Manager at Wakeen & Company, a strategic consultancy that helps other businesses unlock their true potential.
She has a passion for expression in many forms, one of which is dance. Although she has limited dance experience, her heart has been drawn to the power of movement since she was a little girl. Whether she was dancing in the back of the room during a worship service at her church, or simply soaking up videos of beautiful choreography, she knew dance would be a part of her life.
Brianna’s love for dance continued to blossom when she joined Triumphant Praise Dance Troupe at Cornell University. Upon graduating she knew she did not want to let dance go. So in the winter of 2018 she partnered with a friend to begin weekly hour long prayer sessions that were geared towards dancers. “Sometimes we do not know what words to pray but we can get it all out through dance. That’s the heart behind this prayer group,” says Brianna.
In the fall of 2018 she joined the EncounteredHeart team. She is looking forward to how God moves in and through the team. “I don’t know what God is going to do through EncounteredHeart, but I know it’s going to be good – and I’m ready for the ride!”
