Brianna Cunningham

StayLocal Program Assistant

Brianna is no stranger to StayLocal’s work and mission. She served as an Americorps member with StayLocal in 2016, assisting in the creation of networking and marketing opportunities for StayLocal members.  Since receiving her BA in Sociology and English from Bucknell University, Brianna has done nonprofit marketing and fundraising, community development, and economic empowerment work for a number of small businesses and nonprofit organizations.
Brianna took her first plane ride to New Orleans for the Bucknell University Katrina Recovery Team trip. The Bucknell Katrina Recovery Team is dedicated to helping survivors of the devastating 2005 hurricane as they worked to rebuild their homes and reclaim their communities. From there, not only did she develop a passion for giving back but she also developed a love for local business as the experience of shopping, eating, and enjoying local is what allow her to have some of the most unforgettable experiences here in New Orleans.
