Originally from southeastern Michigan, Brie studied landscape design at Purdue University before moving to North Carolina in 2002. She began her career as an estate gardener at Montrose. This led her to accept a position at Plant Delights Nursery as production manager propagating rare perennials collected from around the globe. Most recently, Brie was the propagator and grower at Camellia Forest Nursery. Here, she specialized in producing rare trees and shrubs including Camellia.

In 2014, Brie was hired as the foodscaping and landscape design correspondent on the PBS television show Growing a Greener World. In season six, she will be filming from her one acre suburban garden giving practical advice on integrating edibles in a traditional ornamental landscape.

She speaks internationally on many garden related topics and was featured in Organic Gardening magazine as a leader of the "New Generation of Gardeners." Additionally, Brie is an active member of the JC Raulston Arboretum and is the N.C. regional representative for the Garden Conservancy's Open Days Program. She writes a column in the trade magazine Nursery Management and is social media chair for the Southern Region International Plant Propagators Society.
