Briana works for KPMG as a Service Leader and Manager for the National Design, Proposal, and Production Services (NDPPS) department. She leads a dynamic creative team in various office locations across the firm, including Kansas City, St. Louis, Minneapolis, and Denver. She is passionate about building an inclusive environment where individuals can bring their whole self to work in a collaborative and diverse space. She has active leadership roles in the firm’s national disability Business Resource Group (BRG), Abilities in Motion (AIM), and is an advocate for disability inclusion in the workplace and accessibility for all people.
Briana currently serves on the Board of Directors for Special Olympics Missouri and has spent many years volunteering for Special Olympics North America through her employer. This involvement led her to be chosen to serve on the Unified Sports Committee for Special Olympics, Inc. as a Unified Sport Delegate (USD) for Golf at the 2019 Special Olympics World Summer Games in Abu Dhabi.
Briana has a passion for inclusion and believes that Unified Sports is one of the best ways to provide meaningful experiences for Athletes and Unified Partners together across all sports. She feels that these Unified experiences naturally translate and bridge to involvements outside of sport and help promote inclusive behaviors in all life situations—at work, play, and home.
In addition to her volunteer activity with Special Olympics, she also volunteers for The Whole Person in Kansas City, Missouri, which connects people with disabilities to the resources they need by supporting independent choice and advocating for positive change in the community; and for KPMG’s Family for Literacy, which partners with First Book to provide new books and other educational resources to children in need.
