Brittany joined us in August of 2021. She has worked in the public eye since graduating from USI back in 2017, where she received her Bachelor of Science Degree and Minor in Public Health. Immediately after graduation, she counseled clients to better health with her Nutrition expertise and learned useful social skills along the way.

In her spare time, she focuses to grow in her Faith, photography business, and studies around general psychological/behavioral health.
