Brianna grew up in a small town in the Hudson Valley of New York. She started working at age 14 to pay for the things she wanted and always had a job (or three) from middle school through college.
In High School, she learned the value of service when she became a very active member of the Milton Engine Company No. 1 as a Volunteer Firefighter. She took every training course around the county trying to learn every aspect of firefighting and was voted Junior Firefighter of the year for outstanding effort. She attended the State University of New York at New Paltz where she earned her BA in Physics and BS in Geology.
After 7 years of volunteer service, she resigned from the department when she went to Stony Brook University to earn her MS in Geochemistry.
