Briana Manfrass, EDAC
Managing Principal

Where would we be without Briana? As a leader, organizer, exceptional Project Manager, and Interior Designer, she brings energy and drive that raises the bar and “wows” everyone around her. Since she was a little girl, Briana has had a passion for design and space planning. She always knew that interior design was her dream job. She continues to grow and learn through training and earning her Evidence-Based Design Accreditation and Certification (EDAC). EDAC is a process of basing decisions about the built environment on credible research to achieve the best possible outcomes. Combining Briana’s EDAC certification with her passion for healthy design, you can often find Briana speaking at national and local conferences and writing for Pinnacle’s blog and various publications.

In 2018, Briana became an owner at Pinnacle and continues to fulfill the firm’s mission and guide the vision. In addition, she’s active in the community, as a member of the Bend Economic Development Advisory Board and many committees helping solve the area’s houseless and childcare challenges.

Her life isn’t any calmer at home, with two elementary-aged kids, dogs, cats, and chickens. Briana and her contractor husband enjoy working on home improvements and boating in the summer!
