My name is Brianna, but I go by Bre, I’ve found this is easier for people (and I run into less mispronunciations). I am at the quarter century mark of my life and so far it’s treating me well. I recently made the move up north to Minneapolis (I might deeply regret this decision come December) and started a new job as a Brand Coordinator. I get to manage our corporate social media accounts, work as media/public relations, as well as getting the opportunity to write, which has always been a passion of mine.
I love everything about marketing – from the opportunity to try my hand at new skills to the ever-changing environment – this profession keeps me on my toes and keeps my brain sharp, which I can be thankful for as a 20-something.
I’m always looking to add like-minded professionals to my network – bounce ideas off, see what they’re working on, etc. – as well as always welcoming new opportunities.
In my personal life I love to read, currently, I’ve been obsessed with suspense novels but I love everything from Harry Potter to Jodi Picoult to Harper Lee. I also love being outdoors; whether I’m talking my (adorable!) dog for a walk, exploring the farmers market on a Saturday morning, or attempting to paddle board, if the weather is nice, I want to be outside (given the temperature is about 50 degrees).
I’m passionate about volunteering; I’ve spent much of my free time volunteering for non-profits that raise awareness for mental health and melanoma, both of which are near and dear to my heart.
Dislikes? Decaf coffee. I just don’t understand it. I think coffee is acceptable at all times of the day and night (with caffeine).
Anything I didn’t cover? Go ahead and ask. I’m an open book.
