Briana Manfrass, EDAC
Associate Principal

Where would we be without Briana? Leader, organizer, negotiator, and exceptional Project Manager and Interior Designer, she brings an energy and drive that raises the bar, and she “wows” everyone around her. From the time 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. Her dream became a reality when she got her degree from the Portland Art Institute.

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.

Her life isn’t any calmer at home. Briana and her husband have an elementary-aged son and toddling little girl. Combined, those two are quite adept at making a mess of her home’s interior!
