Brianna heads up the Stripes Talent Team and partners with our portfolio companies on all things related to people. She provides Stripes’ companies direct access to the firm’s network, comprised of world class executives and operators. By sourcing and connecting with leaders in various functions, she leads a team that has placed hundreds of candidates in high-impact roles across the Stripes portfolio, and opened the doors for commercial partnerships as well. As an advocate for elevating women’s voices, she is a board member of the Women on Boards Project, a non-profit aimed to provide access for women to join boardrooms in an effort to build inclusive, diverse and high-performing cultures.

Prior to joining Stripes in 2015, Brianna spent her early career as an executive recruiter at Daversa Partners, a premier headhunting firm for consumer and technology companies. She originally discovered her passion for recruiting as an intern for American Eagle Outfitters. A proud Nittany Lion, Brianna bleeds blue and white and holds a degree in Public Relations from The Pennsylvania State University.

"There has never been a more important time than now when finding exceptional talent is imperative to our companies’ success. As investors in addition to recruiters, we provide a dynamic approach when finding the perfect candidates to accelerate our businesses."


Brianna was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada although she has never gambled. She is a lover of all things Disney and country music related. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, baking, and all types of exercising to accommodate the first two hobbies.
