Brittany comes to BWA with a Bachelor’s in Health Sciences from Howard University, and a Master of Public Health from the University of San Francisco. Born and raised in Oakland, Ca, Brittany has always been inspired by the social and political movements that began in the bay area. Brittany is excited to work with BWA because of its innovation in using social marketing to help marginalized communities feel empowered to take control of their health, and also acting as a media outlet that delivers messages of positivity and hope.
During her time at Howard, Brittany volunteered with the Americorps program Jumpstart. It was here that her passion for working with the youth began. She hopes to nurture this passion back in her hometown and be a part of a movement that allows youth of color to not only change the way others view them, but also change the way they see themselves.
In her spare time Brittany, enjoys sports, writing poetry, being outdoors, making dry jokes, creating memories with loved ones, connecting with people and organizations that work with the youth, and slamming dominoes.
