Brianne graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in International Studies. After interning at a refugee resettlement agency during college, Brianne decided to attend law school and pursue her dream of becoming an immigration attorney. She went on to receive her law degree from the University of Richmond, where she served as the Blog and Social Media Editor for the Public Interest Law Review and the Vice President of the International Law Society.

As a first year law student, Brianne began interning for Sumner Immigration and has never looked back! She is delighted to be a part of the team as an Immigration Associate.

When she is not working, Brianne enjoys listening to Audiobooks, walking her dog, and baking treats for her friends (and anyone who will eat them)!
