<< Return to Our Vets and Staff page

Brianna joined BEMC in June 2021 as an assistant veterinary technician. At an early age, she began taking hunter/jumper lessons near Conway, New Hampshire, and quickly discovered her passion for horses. Her collegiate career brought her to Billings, Montana, where she received a BS in Equestrian Studies from Rocky Mountain College. Throughout college, Brianna was fortunate to work with horses from different disciplines, including western pleasure, hunter/jumper, cow horse, and reining. After graduating with honors and moving to Eagle Point, Oregon, she became an assistant horse trainer at John Irish Performance Horses. During her four-year tenure training and caring for performance horses, she discovered her love of veterinary medicine. Brianna likes to spend her leisure time riding horses, adventuring with her blue heeler, Atlas, and reading.
