    Briana is a born-and-raised Hoboken Girl who embraces both the new and old aspects of the Mile Square. She’s a freelance writer, works in social media, and more importantly (but not really) — a cat lover and total foodie. When she’s not working, she can be found convincing herself to buy something at Sephora or Target, eating mussels with her fiancé at Leo’s, or planning her next Disney vacation.
