First joining NAC in October 2018 as an Intern from the UW Seattle School of Social Work, after graduating, Brianna became a full time Program Coordinator. Born in St. Petersburg, FL, they moved to Tacoma in 2008 and realized they were home. Brianna brings a passion for liberation, true community building, and a desire to dismantle anti-Blackness, to all of the work they do. They act as a consultant on LGBTQ+ policy development and education for multiple organizations in the greater Seattle/Tacoma area. Influenced by their positionality as a genderfluid queer Black femme, Brianna is deeply interested in creating affirming and empowering spaces for QTPOC to embrace themselves – while building a society that does the same.
When they’re not working or building community, Brianna is likely writing poems, playing ukulele, or learning new recipes to cook for friends.
