About Me

Hi there! I’m Briana. Welcome to Learning to Be Free.

I created Learning to Be Free because for a very long time I lived my life and based a lot of my decisions on how others would perceive me.  I was satisfied with my life, but not truly living it the way that I wanted to or the way that I deserved.  I eventually decided to take my life into my own hands and gained an immense amount of freedom in all areas of my life.  To me, Learning To Be Free means taking a deep look into yourself, figuring out what ways you’re limiting your life, and taking intentional steps forward to living the way you want.

So who am I?

I’m a licensed social worker and higher education professional that has worked with hundreds of clients and students, helping them figure out how to live their best lives through mental health, career, and education support.  I have an MS in Social Administration and a soon to be M.Ed in Higher Education Administration (so excited)! I’ll be completing my Life Coaching certification in mid-2019 (doubly excited!).

Other than that professional stuff, I love all things Marvel (I have a huge soft spot for Captain America <3), watching documentaries, traveling, spending time with my family, and playing with my cat Chloe.

I’m here to share my experiences (including personal ones) and bring you tips and resources about careers and education, mental health and wellness, and everything in between!
