Briana Plume
Owner
Licensed Esthetician

Born and raised in the Lakes Region, Briana decided to pursue her passion for skin therapies, graduating the 900 hour Advanced Esthetics program. Briana has continued her mastery with advanced certifications in multiple modalities including Dermaplane, Hydrafacial, Sculpting Facial Massage, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Gua Sha, and more. Briana has found a passion in creating both a deeply relaxing, and results driven experience for all of her clients.

Briana has also found passion in business ownership as it has allows her to help a broader range of people than she ever would have been able to help by herself. The collaborative space at Meredith Whole Living Center is something Briana truly prides herself in. Being able to build and grow a team of award winning practitioners, who are committed to creating a beautiful, warm, co-collaborative space has been her greatest dream. She is so very proud to share that flourishing dream with you.

Work aside, Briana enjoys being outside (during the warmer months!) as well as spending time with her partner Tom, and their two wonderful boys.
