Briana grew up in the rolling hills of Blue Mound, Missouri riding horses, playing sports, and tinkering in her father's wood shop. At the age of 15, she was scouted by an agent from St. Louis while on a shopping trip into town with her mother. She modeled part time while remaining focused on sports and her studies. She played basketball and competed as an all-state high-jumper before and moving to New York City and began modeling full time. Outside of work and travel, you'll find her studying at Columbia University, playing any sport, practicing yoga, painting or writing. She loves to read, is fascinated by creative thinkers and problem solvers and champions a holistic approach to beauty and wellness.
