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. The two recently conquered another mountain together, renovating and expanding their home! Being married to an architect presented some unique challenges along the way, but the end result has been 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 Past President for the Southern Region Association for Learning Environments and an Associate Board Member for the DFW ACE Mentor Program.
Briar enjoys spending quality time at home with her husband, Patrick, and their fur-baby, Roxie. Snuggle time on the couch, morning walks with her family and playing a round of golf are some of her favorite weekend activities.
When Briar is not working or volunteering, she enjoys traveling. A few years ago, she and Patrick traveled throughout Italy to celebrate her birthday and their anniversary. They are eager for their next adventure across the big blue ocean to explore other parts of Europe and beyond.
During Briar’s time at Glenn|Partners, she has been responsible for everything related to the operation of our firm as well as managing and leading projects including Dallas College’s Brookhaven Campus Early College Center, Fort Worth ISD’s McLean Middle School and 6th Grade Center Additions / Renovations, and a multi-phased project at Ursuline Academy in Dallas.
