Brittany completed her degree in Psychology from Boston University and provided care to clients in the community and their homes. After years of working in a variety of roles, Brittany obtained her Bachelors in Nursing and went on to graduate with honors and her Masters in Nursing from Columbia University.

While completing her education, Brittany transitioned from managing sub-stance abuse research studies at UCLA to overseeing studies and instructing students at the New York State Psychiatric Institute. Brittany continued serving as a faculty member for Columbia and Einstein University, until moving to Colorado, where she now precepts students for CU. Gaining experience prescribing both on inpatient units and in outpatient settings, Brittany sought additional training in Motivational Interviewing and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy to enhance medication management.
