When Bryanna learned to read chapter books before Kindergarten, her creativity and love of the written word launched into high gear when she started to write things down herself.
Bryanna kept her passion for writing alive and cast it into journalism. She graduated from Missouri Baptist University with degrees in communications and public relations, and is an alumna of the World Journalism Institute's Convergence Media program in New York City. Bryanna served as the managing editor of Timeline Online, MBU's online student newspaper, for two years since its start in 2010. She also produced, anchored and edited the weekly student news broadcast "Timeline."
Bryanna first became involved with Patch as a blogger and then started freelancing. A life-long St. Louisan, she has loved getting to know the area better through Patch assignments and the unique stories life has to tell.
When she's not writing, Bryanna snaps photographs, watches Cardinals games, reads news and books, and spends time with friends and family. She is greatly involved at her hometown church, from the music team to teaching Sunday school to creating sets for musicals. Whether she's working hard or watching The Big Bang Theory, she enjoys good coffee on any occasion.
At Patch, we promise always to report the facts as objectively as possible and otherwise adhere to the principles of good journalism. However, we also acknowledge that true impartiality is impossible because human beings have beliefs. So in the spirit of simple honesty, our policy is to encourage our editors to reveal their beliefs to the extent they feel comfortable. This disclosure is not a license for you to inject your beliefs into stories or to dictate coverage according to them. In fact, the intent is the opposite: we hope that the knowledge that your beliefs are on the record will cause you to be ever mindful to write, report and edit in a fair, balanced way. And if you ever see evidence that we failed in this mission, please let us know.
I lean more toward the conservative side, but when it comes down to it, I vote for and support what matches most closely to my morals and personal beliefs.
I am an active member of the Christian church. Ultimately, I'm a human just like everyone else and don't see it as my place to judge others. I believe I am saved by a love beyond this world and am learning more and more how to best represent that.
