Hello

My name is Brie (she/her), originally from Savage, Minnesota and currently a third year at Miami University graduating in May of 2025. I am studying Supply Chain and Operations management at Farmer School of Business with a co-major in Fashion Corporate Business and a marketing minor. My academic pursuits reflect my commitment to blending the worlds of fashion and business.


I am a resilient, intuitive, and organized individual that aims to strengthen my skills through extensive experiences with on-campus organizations to flourish into a vibrant leader. So far, I have held positions like Business Development Director for MUF&D and Director of Internal Promotion for Alpha Kappa Psi which have shaped me into who I am today and only reinforced my excitement about entering the fashion industry.


In my free time, I love hobbies some of which include golfing, snowboarding, crocheting, crafting, waterskiing, playing pickleball and am an avid traveler!
