Brianna Worthing at Om of Medicine
Brianna 964 1024 admin

Bri is a proud product of Ann Arbor public schools and a recent graduate from the University of Michigan. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Movement Science at the School of Kinesiology, following her interests in human physiology and motor control development.

There were many factors that captured Bri’s love for cannabis including its natural holistic healing approach and its rich evolutionary and sociopolitical history. The relatively high-safety profile of cannabis as a medication in addition to its extensive therapeutic window further inspired her to learn as much as she can about this versatile plant.

Bri is passionate about researching and understanding the complexity of our endocannabinoid system and the vast properties of health benefits that come from introducing external cannabinoids extracted from the cannabis plant. As the Patient Care Coordinator at Om, she focuses on facilitating a comfortable & educational environment that prioritizes personalized assistance for each patient. On her days off, Bri loves exploring new nature trails with her dog, Charlie, and finds comfort in reading novels and listening to records.
