Brianna has always been passionate about education but her interest in education law was sparked when she served as a long-term substitute teacher for Dayton Public Schools – prior to going to law school – teaching 7th and 8th grade English and 5th grade Math and Science. Brianna received her Bachelor’s Degree in English with a minor in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies from The Ohio State University.
