A deep commitment to celebrating the diversity of human experience informs Briana’s work both in the U.S. and abroad. Trained as a Professional Integral Coach (a holistic and developmental approach), her coaching is also influenced by years of immersing herself in diverse worldviews around the globe. This has led her to explore modalities of leadership development through somatic practices, nature-connected inquiry, adult development, mindfulness, and, of course, cross-cultural communication and relationship building. Through this work, she remains committed to supporting others to step more fully into their own unique brilliance.
Today, she is actively involved in launching a non-profit called the Healing and Reconciliation Institute, which uses evidence-based reconciliation tools and practices to help heal racial and historical divides. She also works with the Dragons Fund, a non-profit initiative focused on improving diversity outcomes and access to the transformative opportunities possible through a global education.
