Bri is a frequent presenter and highly-sought speaker at conferences around the nation, including FETC, ISTE, Fusion, Learning Forward, ASCD, .EDU19, iPadpolooza, What Great Educators Do Differently, TCEA, MassCUE and SXSWedu and many others.

If she isn’t leading a session, diving into a strategy, learning and vlogging about EdTech favorites, or waiting to board an airplane, you can find Bri cheering on the sidelines at her son’s (MasonMAN) games, sketching, painting or cooking with her daughter (TenaciousD), wrangling longhorns and horses at her family farm, or finding moments of laughter and connection with her husband, family and friends.
