Meet Briar Glenn, our founding Partner of the firm. With the love and support of her husband, Briar started this momentous journey and has never looked back. She is now ready to tackle an even bigger mountain, renovating and expanding her home. Being married to an architect has presented some unique challenges but she is confident the end result will be a happy compromise of two stubborn souls.
Briar believes the most precious gift you can give is your time. In addition to her firm commitments, Briar currently serves as the President for the Southern Region Association for Learning Environments and as an Associate Board Member for the ACE Mentor Program.
Briar enjoys spending simple and quiet evenings at home with her husband, Patrick, and their fur-baby, Roxie. Snuggle time on the couch and morning walks with her family are some of her favorite weekend activities.
When Briar is not working or volunteering, she enjoys traveling. A couple years ago she and Patrick traveled throughout Italy to celebrate her birthday and their anniversary. Once things get back to normal, they hope to take another trip across the ocean to travel around other parts of Europe.
During Briar’s time at Glenn|Partners, Briar has been responsible for everything related to the operation of our firm in addition to managing and leading projects including Holy Trinity Seminary’s new Cardinal Farrell Student Center, Cristo Rey Dallas College Prep, Fort Worth ISD’s Amon Carter Riverside High School and major expansions at Ursuline Academy in Dallas.
