Brianna Bernhardt

Community Development Coordinator

Brianna was born in Utah but at six years old moved to Boise, Idaho. She returned to her birth state to pursue professional dance training at the University of Utah, where she discovered an avid interest in marketing and programmatic development. While earning her BFA, Brianna directed Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute’s Skills Program, a community engaged learning program that partners with local entrepreneurs, artists, and restaurateurs. This experience, alongside internships with Utah arts nonprofits, brought Brianna into the social sector and introduced her to social entrepreneurship. Brianna uses her marketing background and a passion for community cultivation in the hopes of making an impact in Utah’s philanthropic landscape. Outside of business hours Brianna enjoys freelance writing, visiting museums, and supporting Salt Lake City’s flourishing arts scene.
