Briana is a registered veterinary technician at Petersen Pet Hospital. She is from the small town of Lost Nation. She and her parents share their home with two cats Ranger and Cheeto, along with many outdoor farm cats.

Growing up, she enjoyed spending time with her first dog, a German Shepherd named Taz. He had a long and happy life of 14 years! Living on a farm, she always had a strong passion for animals which lead her to join 4H where she gained an interest in show chickens. Briana showed chickens every year at the county fair for 6 years until graduation. She graduated from Midland Community High School in 2014 and was active in volleyball, basketball, track, and FFA. Upon graduation, she enrolled in the Veterinary Technician program at Kirkwood and graduated in 2017.

In her free time, she enjoys spoiling her two cats, working out, side by side trips with family, camping, sand volleyball, and spending time with her nephew.
