Brittany is a graduate of California State University, Long Beach, and holds a B.A. in Psychology.  She’s worked within the education field for the past 6 years, beginning as a counselor at a Jewish Center in West LA, implementing proactive physical fitness for children. She transitioned into private tutoring at a local elementary/middle school, where she got the chance to independently work with students and interact with families and teachers.  She was a teacher in the SmartStart Program before stepping into the role of Director in the fall of this year. Brittany considers herself blessed to be a part of such an amazing organization that has honestly become her second home. She is a strong believer in giving children the resources they need to reach their highest potential.  During her free time, Brittany enjoys going to concerts, web searching, and hanging out with her amazing SmartStart ladies, whom she’s grown so close to.
