Brianna Kocka

Brianna is a Minnesota native who, after taking a ten month sabbatical to live on an island off the coast of Massachusetts, is happier than ever to be back in her home state, and even more excited to be a part of the thriving  philanthropic community through her work at MCF. As our Member Services Specialist, Brianna helps streamline event logistics, aids our members in managing their online profiles, and acts as a project manager for both the Program and Communications teams.

Prior to joining MCF, Brianna spent ten years working for caused-based and non-profit organizations including Grassroots Solutions, the Minneapolis Area Association of REALTORS and the Minnesota Renewal Center. In 2011 she graduated from Canada’s smallest university—St. Stephen’s University—and while attending also worked as an independent contractor, aiding them in graphic design and desktop publishing for their Marketing and Communications department.

Brianna is also an artist, poet and musician. She is in the midst of writing her first chapbook. She also plays and sings in three bands: Brianna Kocka, Sun Gods to Gamma Rays and CAETANI. When she is not performing she can be found working on her camper van build out, hiking, touring her music, and spending time with her family.
