More about Bri

Future plans:

It's important to me that I pursue a service-based career and become involved with the community. I will be working as a Case Manager at the Pope Francis Haven in Spokane Valley for Catholic Charities while continuing to work as an Art Teacher at the local SAC School and Juvenile Detention Center. Additionally, I'll begin teaching at the Spokane Art School and continuing to privately sell my work, and design and paint murals in the city!

How has your major contributed to your professional or personal development?

Both my Art and my English majors have given me the opportunity to explore different service-based careers and involve me in the Spokane community.

What has been your proudest or most significant accomplishment during your Gonzaga career?

I am the 2022 recipient of Anthony T. Wadden and Michael B. Herzog Scholarship (from Gonzaga's English Department) and now the recipient of the Senior Art Award. It's been amazing being recognized as a high achieving student in both my fields of study.
