#TeamJWA would like to welcome the first of three interns for the summer!
Briana Herrington, fourth-year double major at the University of Kansas studying strategic communications and dance, is leaping at the opportunity to join our creative team. Briana has past marketing experience from work in the real estate industry and coordinating dance performances. She comes from a family of healthcare workers and grew up dancing in the Dallas area.
Briana has worked for the University of Kansas Agency as an account manager for McGrew Real Estate. She did social media marketing for “Stone & Story” a real estate sales group at Keller Williams Realty of Topeka.
Briana’s adventure through school has allowed her to express her intellectual and creative freedoms! The KU dance department has provided Briana the opportunity to choreograph, present and perform creative works by herself, fellow students and professional choreographers. In the past, Briana has performed at half time performances with the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders, at the Susan G. Komen gala and with the University of Kansas dance company. Briana is currently president of the University of Kansas PRSSA chapter and on the KU Journalism School honor roll.
Last summer Briana went and studied abroad in Florence Italy where she stayed with a host family and studied the Italian language. In her free time, she likes to take dance classes, read books and socialize with friends. Briana is excited to be back in Dallas, away from the Kansas cold, and starting her journey as an intern with J. Waylon and Associates.
