This week’s client spotlight highlights Visit York County, SC’s Brianna Francis. Brianna has been with Visit York County for two and a half years, and couldn’t be more thrilled to be where she’s at after switching careers from TV news. Originally from Northern Indiana, Brianna moved to South Carolina nine years ago and now resides in Fort Mill.

Brianna’s favorite place to be while traveling is the beach. “Give me a beach chair and some sand to dig my toes into and I’m happy!,’ said Francis. “I’ll take any piece of ocean view I can get.”

Besides traveling outside of work, Brianna enjoys exploring hiking trails, learning about historic locations or tracking down a new place to eat.

When asked what her favorite thing about promoting York County is, she says it’s the storytelling aspect. “I love being able to share stories that help our small business thrive.”

The most important thing Brianna learned in 2020? To PIVOT. “In all seriousness, I think 2020 proved that while our job is recruiting visitors, our home base, our locals should also be a strong focus,” Francis said. “Without their support we couldn’t survive.”
