She strives to bring home stories to tell on the big screen. She has deep dived into the anti-poaching world, fighting the ivory trade and protecting South African animals and rangers. She also has worked closely with Cambodian organization, Somaly Mam, teaching and serving as a role model to young victims of sex trafficking. Most recently, Briana has ventured into producing and directing, with 3 projects in development.Briana's first foray into the development world came following a traumatic experience where she was painfully struck by the ubiquitous mistreatment of elephants in Southeast Asia, so much so that it became unimaginable to step back into Hollywood, role playing as she once saw it. It was clear for her at that point, that her life's mission was to make use of her background, her network, and most importantly, her voice, to advocate on behalf of those without.Over the years that followed, countless campaigns, fundraisers, speaking events, and mission trips affirmed Briana's allegiance to animal advocacy, ultimately positioning her as a global voice of authority in this space. She is most excited about her upcoming completed films, Just Below Sunset, and Love and Communication.
