Briana is from Lake Havasu in Arizona.

“Every little girl’s dream is to be a veterinarian,” says Briana. “I was stubborn enough to stick with it.”

Briana received her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Arizona, after which she worked at a couple of clinics in Phoenix. She is currently enrolled at Ross University for her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine, but is completing her clinical year at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine.

In her spare time, Briana likes to make time for her husband and her extended family. She has two cats, Corban and Leeloo, who are named after characters in the movie “the Fifth Element.”
