Staff Spotlight, Briana Clary
Tell us about yourself!
My name is Briana Clary and I am a Learning and Development Coordinator at Accanto Health, the parent company of The Emily Program and Veritas Collaborative. I work remotely from Greenville, South Carolina and have been with Accanto for 10 months (almost 1 year!).
Describe the career path that led you to Accanto Health.
My path to this career is an interesting one. I had no formal education in this field when I began my career. I started my journey in 2015 as a dietary assistant at another organization that treats eating disorders. I worked for that organization for many years before leaving due to location closure related to the COVID-19 pandemic. I then found myself working in compliance for an organization that treats substance use disorder. I worked there for a few years but always knewI wanted to return to the eating disorder field. In search of such a position, I connected with Noi Ceballos (Accanto Health’s Talent Acquisition Manager) on LinkedIn and began my career in January 2022 at Accanto as a Learning and Development Coordinator. My passion for this work comes from lived experience, as I am in recovery from an eating disorder. I also love the mission of this organization and the passion of the people who work here.
What do you like most about your job?
I love collaborating daily with my teammates Brittany Tammen and Tyler Pieper. We all have very different strengths and work really well with each other. I love how supportive and encouraging my team is and look forward to our weekly chats. I also enjoy being a part of new employee orientation. I am incredibly passionate about what we do and love sharing that passion with our new hires.
If you could have another job just for a day, what would it be?
If I could have another job for the day, I would be a Broadway actress. I perform in community theatre productions as a hobby, but it would be incredible to get to perform for a living (even for a day!).
Strangest job you’ve ever had?
The strangest job I have had is working for a princess party company. I attended (and still attend) events dressed as various Disney princesses.
