Before Briana was an employee, she was a Tail Blazers customer. She came into the store looking for advice on how to feed her two cats a raw diet. One of them had just come home from a five day stay at the vet, where he was diagnosed and treated for a urinary blockage. That was back in 2015, and she is happy to report that she has had no further health issues with either animal since they were switched to raw. Briana hopes to one day add a couple of dogs and maybe even a horse to her small family. She currently runs her own business as an equine massage and vertebral realignment therapist. She is the newest addition to the Tail Blazers family, having started in September 2017.
