Briana learned early on that she is capable of creating her own destiny. When she was 18, she broke her neck in a debilitating car accident. It derailed her college career, but she unexpectedly discovered the power of positivity and the profound rehabilitative benefits of massage. She attended massage school and established a busy private practice in Portland. But she yearned to create an environment where clients could have a more comprehensive and transcendent healing experience. This came to fruition when, at age 23, she opened The Dragontree Spa.
She went on to attend California College of Ayurveda, where she earned the degree of Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist. Her healthcare practice and the ongoing expansion of The Dragontree stoked her deepening passion for assisting others to reach their full potential. Redefining her career as a wellness entrepreneur and peace engineer, she has now opened four spas, writes extensively on personal development, developed a wellness product line, and created several magazines, books, and online programs to help people achieve their dreams and live extraordinary, healthy lives.
When she’s fully engaging sweetness Briana loves to swim in natural bodies of water, hike in the mountains, dance, create art and cuddle with her daughters. She loves natural medicine, holidays, salted caramels,i nnovative design and fresh flowers.
