Alia Pierson, Founder & CTA

Hi travel friend!!  I'm so glad you're here. I hope you feel inspired to start planning your own adventure soon!   I am a wife and mom to 4 kids (and 1 fur baby).  I love all things travel and find joy in planning seamless travel experiences for my clients. When I'm not planning vacations, I enjoy hiking with my family and baking in the kitchen. 

My Story

I founded Briar & Main Travel Boutique in 2019 to help families and couples embark on stress-free, magical vacations. In fact, I’ve always loved adding more magic to people’s lives. Before Briar & Main, I was a performer at several theme parks (yes, I know the parks very well!). I also worked at a major T.V. network and ran my own wedding cake business—but travel had always called my name. 

After living in Canada for nearly a year—and embarking on plenty of trips abroad—I saw how much travel can impact your thinking and how you connect to others. A well-planned trip can be truly life changing.

The Rest is History....

I joined the travel industry in 2015 after realizing my background in event planning and theme parks could create a career in the travel industry!  I have always had a wanderlust spirit and truly enjoy helping others realize their travel dreams.  After planning hundreds of vacations, Briar & Main has grown into a team of friendly travel advisors across the USA.

I am a certified travel advisor with The Travel Institute, a verified travel advisor and proud member of ASTA and a certified destination wedding & honeymoon specialist with DWHSA.
