• Experiential Education and Internship Programming
She has training in quantitative and qualitative social science research methods and is particularly interested in the role that educational structures, practices, and access plays in communities and societies, both domestically and abroad. Bri believes that developing global competencies and cultural awareness in students is necessary in order to create educated and compassionate global citizens and leaders, and she strives to facilitate student success in this area.
At the individual level, her goal is to help others find personal success and fulfillment, whether that happens through career development, academic advising, or guidance on how to frame and articulate one’s life experiences and stories. Bri has taken classes on storytelling structures and improvisation and uses these experiences to guide others through their own process of self-discovery and empowerment.

Prior to that, she served as the Career Counselor and Internship Program Coordinator for UC Riverside’s School of Public Policy, helping graduate and undergraduate students find meaningful internship experiences and preparing them for careers in the field of public policy. Before that, she worked as the Career Advisor for Alumni Programs at American University’s School of International Service where she helped her fellow alumni translate their academic training and experiences into career success in the field of international affairs.
