Brittany wears many hats and keeps her schedule packed with her passions. While she is an attorney, her passion lies with animals. She is the host of the podcast the Canine Culture Podcast and volunteers with rescues and shelters are local to Jacksonville, Florida. Brittany also serves her community in other volunteer capacities and sits as the President of the Chris V. Brown Foundation, which seeks to help underserved high school students.
Brittany is also very passionate about health and wellness. She previously competed in bodybuilding and has not transitioned to an “amateur runner” as a means to check-off some bucketlist items. As part of this running journey, she has greeted the opportunity to be outside more often with open arms and recognizes the cognitive and mental health benefits of the sport. As someone who battles autoimmune conditions, Brittany started a non-toxic journey during COVID. Being home more frequently and working from home was eye-opening with how many toxins we are surrounded by daily. Perfection is not the goal with moving toward a more non-toxic life; rather, the focus is on how we can balance the toxins we face voluntarily and to reduce that load on our systems.
