Breanna Green – Licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer
From as early as she can remember, Breanna Green knew she wanted to be in a profession that allowed her to help people. Breanna, one of our licensed funeral directors and embalmers, first set out to be a nurse—taking courses at Tallahassee Community College. However, after learning more about the funeral industry while taking a death and dying course, Breanna realized she wanted to change her major and pursue a career as a funeral director.
Now Breanna, who has been with Bevis since 2017, said she is delighted to serve local families and enjoys being a part of a tight-knit team whose focus is on providing caring and empathetic service to the community.
“Three phrases I’d use to describe Bevis Funeral Home and the staff here are compassionate, one-of-a-kind and family-oriented,” Breanna said. “I feel like I’m part of the family and we do a good job of making our clients feel that way, too.”
While at Bevis Funeral Home, Breanna said she has enjoyed helping families honor the lives of their loved ones and supporting them through the always-emotional process of planning a funeral.
“It’s hard to narrow down one great moment working here,” Breanna said. “Every family I meet is the best family I’ve served, and serving all of them is my best moment. I truly feel like I’ve found my calling.”
A native of Tallahassee, Breanna attended Holy Comforter Episcopal School and Lawton Chiles High School. Prior to joining the Bevis Funeral Home team, Breanna worked as a lead wood flooring installer for a local construction company where she was their first female worker. Breanna spent three years with the company while completing online courses at St. Petersburg College of Funeral Services—a fact she says many people still find surprising.
When she’s not working, Breanna said she still enjoys doing various types of carpentry and woodworking, as well as fishing, painting and spending time with her family, boyfriend and friends.
Every day, Breanna said she strives to live by the mantra, “It is nice to be important, but it is more important to be nice,” both professionally and personally.
