Say hello to our newest MAKER, Brie! She recently joined us as the Digital Marketing Assistant. She’s a Kansas City native, fashion lover and travel enthusiast.
Brie graduated from Mizzou with a degree in Journalism and minor in Textile and Apparel Management. She has previously done marketing and event planning for local Columbia businesses and start-ups. She is a social media guru; you can always look to her for the latest news trends, celebrity gossip or basically, well, anything!
When she’s not writing, designing or strategizing social she enjoys hanging out with her friends or binge watching reality TV. She also loves exploring Kansas City for the best happy hours and brunch spots, purchasing the latest Charlie Hustle t-shirts, going on Boulevard tours and eating BBQ! You can most likely find her at every Royals game, as she calls the “K” her second home.
She frequently watches The Food Network in hopes of becoming a better cook, can recite every Gamma Phi Beta song like a day hasn’t passed since college and has an unhealthy obsession with buying shoes.
