WAVE welcomed Brianna to the coaching staffing in 2021. Prior to joining WAVE, Brianna coached at Texas A&M University- Corpus Christi in 2015 for a single season as the second assistant coach under the head coach of Tony Graystone (now head coach of Texas Tech). That year, the TAMUCC Islanders went undefeated in conference play for the first time in program history. She also coached at Corpus Christi Force Volleyball club for four years, and coached at Corpus Christi Crossfire for a year before they merged with CC Force. She has coached all age ranges of players from 4 year olds to 22 to year olds. During the day she is a school psychologist so her coaching philosophy aligns with some of her day time practices. She believes that her job as a coach is to help support every player individually, so they can develop into their full potential on and off the court. She focuses on building and sustaining relationships with the players, so they develop trust in her and her knowledge of the sport. This allows the players to become close with one another and develop great team chemistry. She wants every athlete that she coaches to be successful in every aspect of their lives with the appropriate skills and tools provided to them. Being a great teammate and working hard day are the top two priorities for her teams.
Brianna began playing volleyball in high school when her older brother introduced her to the sport. She attended Norco High School where she held a .450 hitting percentage and played club volleyball at Mavericks and Club West. She was recruited by Texas A&M University- Corpus Christi, where she was a 6-rotation right side and played four years of indoor volleyball and one year of sand volleyball. She was inducted into the athletic Hall of Honors at Texas A&M University- Corpus Christi in 2020. She was the first player in school history to earn AVCA Honorable Mention All-America accolades and AVCA Southwest Region First-Team honors. In 2014, she was named the Islanders Female Athlete of the Year and the Islanders Volleyball Most Outstanding Player. She averaged 3.65 kills per set and currently holds the career record for the Islanders in kills with 1,392.
Brianna has been wakeboarding since she was three years old and was nationally ranked as a slalom skier at twelve. She met her husband in 2018 in Corpus Christi, Texas. However, they later realized they were both from the same hometown of Corona, California but never knew each other. They were recently married on June 26th, 2021.
