A native of Durham, NC, Brittany holds a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism, Communications, and Public Relations from Hampton University; and a Master’s degree in Nonprofit and Political communications from The Johns Hopkins University. Upon graduating, she went to work in marketing and communications with Wake County Economic Development, where she managed an international talent attraction initiative; and worked to create a partnership between local universities, industry organizations, and area businesses to develop a pipeline of talent to fill jobs in key industry sectors.
Brittany next joined a national consulting firm where she assisted airports and state and local transportation agencies as they set their DBE/ACDBE goals for the utilization of minority owned businesses. In this role, she also helped develop and debut a national training model that taught minority business owners how to become DBE/ACDBE certified and secure contracts with state and local agencies. Most recently, she worked with a nonprofit in East Durham that helps connect low-income, minority families and their children with resources and programs that provide academic enrichment, professional development, and socio-emotional supports. In this role, she developed a comprehensive communications strategy for the organization, secured revenue through social media fundraising campaigns, lead community engagement efforts, co-chaired a team that developed a new service delivery model for the entire organization, and worked with partner organizations to develop programing and interventions for children and families.
In her free time Brittany enjoys reading, watching documentaries, traveling, cooking, making jewelry, and spending time with friends and family.
