Briana is a writer, entrepreneur and creative of many trades. Since debuting her inaugural business venture, The English Major Takes Tech, at the 5th-annual Forbes Under 30 Summit as a Forbes Fellow in 2018, she has been lauded for her contributions to the startup space and quest to open doors for other English/non-STEM majors in the tech industry. Her organizational affiliations while in her native Atlanta included Atlanta Tech Village, Georgia Tech’s ATDC, The Gathering Spot and Thinkful Atlanta.
After refining her writing and communicational expertise through contracting for a list of household names, including Boston Consulting Group, Chick-fil-A, the InterContinental Hotels Group Owners Association, and Carter’s, among others (a repertoire she quickly amassed beginning only weeks after her 2017 graduation from Dartmouth College), she pivoted to bring those skills specifically to the health, wellness and fitness industry—a niche with which she has extensive personal experience spanning more than 10 years—by initially joining Athletaand later, Orangetheory Fitness.
Currently, she divides her time between creating content via her personal brand, Just B. Frank, and doing work through her latest initiative, The Prosp(a)rity Project, which she developed as a means for equipping young Black girls and women with the tools necessary for achieving personal, professional and financial success.
When not in work mode, she can usually be found swiping through an ebook, indulging her affinity for animated classics on Disney+, or on the hunt for the best sushi, plantains and mint chocolate chip ice cream/gelato in town.
She presently resides in the southern San Francisco Bay Area.
