Happy Birthday to our one and only Briana! We are so lucky to have Briana as a part of our team! To celebrate her birthday, we did a little Q&A so our readers can get to know her a little better. Read her interview below to get get to know her a little bit better.
Q: How long have you been at Foley Dental Group?
A: Almost 3 years
Q: Before working at Foley Dental Group what was the most interesting job you had and & why?
A: I worked as a traveling stylist. It was interesting because I got to work with my clients in the comfort of their own home and outside the salon setting. It made people open up easier, so clients became friends. I also worked with a number of clients who were unable to get out of their home without major difficulty so the reward of being able to bring them my services, make them feel good, and leave them with a smile made it very enjoyable!
Q: What do you find the most challenging at Foley Dental Group?
A: I can’t think of any challenges! The teamwork here is parallel to none. The ladies I work with are amazing people inside and out. We have such a fun and supportive environment that even challenges are disguised as fun and enjoyable “puzzles.”
Q: What do you like best about Foley Dental Group?
A: I love everything here. I love the patients that we see. They all have their own backgrounds, stories, and walks of life. It’s fun to get to know them, watch the families grow, and meet new people. I also can’t say enough about my team. I genuinely enjoy every person I work with. And another cool tidbit on that note is that I get to say that I work every day with my best friend since childhood!
Q: What accomplishment are you most proud of?
A: We have a dream program here at Foley Dental Group. It’s individualized to each team member and we all receive personal coaching to assist us in accomplishing whatever dream we are working on. There have been an number of dreams I set out to accomplish when we started the program. What I am most proud of is the shockingly (to me) number of dreams I have marked “DONE” in the short time we have had this program. It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you have support and coaching!
Q: What’s your favorite way to spend time outside of work?
A: I love the outdoors. I live on 10 acres in the country. My favorite way to spend time is at the ground with my family. I love when everyone comes over for a fire, to play wiffle ball, or to just breathe in some fresh air and hang out with the family! I also have a pet raccoon who occupies a lot of my time. 🙂
Q: Favorite line from a movie?
A: From The Dude: Well yeah, that’s just, like, your opinion, man.
Q: Any nicknames?
A: BK and The Big Hurt from my softball days… or Big Hurt for short. Haha!
Q: If you could be from any time period, what would it be and why?
A: The roaring 20’s. I love the style! The flappers were amazing & prohibition seems like a pretty interesting and fun time in American history.
Q: If you had to eat at one restaurant for the rest of your life, what would it be?
A: I’m not capable of narrowing it down to one! Variety is the spice of life!
As you can see, Briana has so much to offer and is such an important part of our team! Make sure to chat her up next time you are in the office and ask her about her pet raccoon, Clyde. 😉
