Brianna Henries, Digital Media & Design Coordinator
Brianna Henries works as the Digital Media & Design Coordinator at the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence (RICADV), a role she’s held since June 2023. She implements the RICADV’s communications plan by managing the organization’s social media, designing graphics for digital communications and printed materials, photographing events, and co-coordinating public awareness campaigns. Brianna is of Native American, African-American, and Cape Verdean descent, and a lifelong Rhode Islander. Her working-class upbringing taught Brianna resilience and resourcefulness and put her on a path to use her talents to advocate for a better world. Through her post-secondary education, she expanded her experience across the creative world, which she’s directed towards management, advocacy work, and design throughout her career. Her design work as a retail manager was so impactful that it was adopted into a training protocol and used internationally across store branches. Brianna is currently serving her second term as a Rhode Island State Representative for East Providence and Pawtucket. When she’s not working, she spends her time watching food docu-series and rom-coms, creating avant-garde makeup looks, trying out local restaurants in true foodie fashion, playing Dungeons and Dragons, and spending time with her partner Jarod and their dog Cooper.
