Her senior year she had the honor of playing Harper Pitt in Angels in America under the direction of JV Mercanti, a role that she favors to date.
Since graduation, Liana has focused her energy greatly in the commercial modeling world, working with brands such JBL Speakers, Lancóme, Door Dash, Budweiser, W Hotels, Conair, LÓreal Paris, AS98, TRESemme and many more.
